Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro--It's not what you expect at first, but still a good book worth reading. Makes you think....
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro is a great read. It's an adult novel, somewhere between sy-fi and realistic fiction. The twist got me - because as the book says, you're told, and you're not told what's going to happen in the end. But it was beautifully written, and unlike anything else. This is for sure more adult in nature then many of the other books on my list but it's worth reading.

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks I have heard that is is well worth reading.
Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor Southern tobacco farmer who worked the same land as her slave ancestors, yet her cells—taken without her knowledge—became one of the most important tools in medicine. The first “immortal” human cells grown in culture, they are still alive today, though she has been dead for more than sixty years. If you could pile all HeLa cells ever grown onto a scale, they’d weigh more than 50 million metric tons—as much as a hundred Empire State Buildings. HeLa cells were vital for developing the polio vaccine; uncovered secrets of cancer, viruses, and the atom bomb’s effects; helped lead to important advances like in vitro fertilization, cloning, and gene mapping; and have been bought and sold by the billions. Yet Henrietta Lacks remains virtually unknown, buried in an unmarked grave. Now Rebecca Skloot takes us on an extraordinary journey, from the “colored” ward of Johns Hopkins Hospital in the 1950s to stark white laboratories with freezers full of HeLa cells; from Henrietta’s small, dying hometown of Clover, Virginia—a land of wooden slave quarters, faith healings, and voodoo—to East Baltimore today, where her children and grandchildren live and struggle with the legacy of her cells. Henrietta’s family did not learn of her “immortality” until more than twenty years after her death, when scientists investigating HeLa began using her husband and children in research without informed consent. And though the cells had launched a multimillion-dollar industry that sells human biological materials, her family never saw any of the profits. As Rebecca Skloot so brilliantly shows, the story of the Lacks family—past and present—is inextricably connected to the dark history of experimentation on African Americans, the birth of bioethics, and the legal battles over whether we control the stuff we are made of. Over the decade it took to uncover this story, Rebecca became enmeshed in the lives of the Lacks family—especially Henrietta’s daughter Deborah, who was devastated to learn about her mother’s cells. She was consumed with questions: Had scientists cloned her mother? Did it hurt her when researchers infected her cells with viruses and shot them into space? What happened to her sister, Elsie, who died in a mental institution at the age of fifteen? And if her mother was so important to medicine, why couldn’t her children afford health insurance? Intimate in feeling, astonishing in scope, and impossible to put down, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks captures the beauty and drama of scientific discovery, as well as its human consequences.

Life of Pi - Yann Martel - Although they have just released the movie I would recommend reading the book, worth the read.
Currently reading this. It took 90 pgs to really get into it, but now I can't put it down. Apparently, there's a movie coming out this year (2012). Life of Pi by Yann Martel
Life of Pi by Yann Martel, a story of a young castaway who faces immeasurable hardships on the high seas, and a meditation on faith and life. Really a wonderful story. I like both the book and the movie. (ALS)
Life of Pi by Yann Martel is simply one of the most wonderful books I have ever read. Starts a little slow, but then just erupts. I could not put this book down. Would highly recommending reading the book before seeing the movie!
