Fall of Giants - wonderful novel written with historical precision, some suspense.
The Pillars of the Earth, Ken Follett; I don't usually describe books as rollercoasters, but this one was. Interesting characters with fates that swing up and down many, many times.
The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet. One of the best historical novels I've read. Wonderful characters! It's a long one but I flew through it with lots of late night reading.
Water for Elephants - Sara Gruen Again, book was amazing - movie not so much.
