The Master and Margrita by Mikhail Bulgakov, great Satire on the old Soviet Union a must.
I would also recommend From Beirut to Jerusalem by Thomas Freidman if you are interested in the Near East.
Another one would be The Invisible Man by HG Wells combine that with Memoirs of an Invisible man by HF Saint.
A few other's would be anything by Robert Ludlum including The Scorpio Illusion and The Bourne series he's a fantastic Spy thriller writer. Lastly I would have to say James Lee Burke novels about Dave Robicheuax are great, Neon Rain is amazing and short as well, In the electric Mist with confederate dead amazing. If you like tough cop mystery novels check him out.

yes reading is a great way to escape the nightmare amerika has become... I'm envious of anyone who can relax long enough to read a book who isn't incarcerated ha-ha... that being said, the best series ever is The Hyperion Cantos by Dan Simmons. it's 4 books and I can't even say anything else.... I don't want to alter your experience in any way. I'll tell you it's sci-fi though :-D

after reading the rest of the thread I'll venture to name 2 more must haves.
Get the Bachman Books! it's one book with 4 stories. Get it!! Geeeet Iiiiit!!!! Doesn't matter if you like horror or stephen king...
Also.... Snowcrash by Neal Stephenson... GET IIIIIT!

Confessions of an Economic Hitman by John Perkins

Or anything by John Pilger. One of the last real journalists out there. Hidden Agendas is a great starting point.

And if you ever get bogged down and just want to switch off and return to a simpler time I'd recommend picking up any Roald Dahl book and see everything through innocent eyes again, if only for a couple of hours.

A few titles worth perusing:

"The Moor's Last Sigh" - Salman Rushdie
"Dubliners" - James Joyce

All are great reads.

The Game by Neil Strauss

People will say that men that read this are male chauvinists, but they don't give it credit that it is a genuinely amusing book. I don't employ the techniques described by the author to "get in the psyche of women" but I believe that all males do use them in a subconscious manner. Strange thing is, is that I be that the technique have a high degree of sucess. A women could come out with a book about how to manipulate males, and it wouldn't be sexist, more like skillfully influencing.

Finnegan's Wake by James Joyce

The big of Negroes by Lawrence Hill.

I am not usually into reading "story books" but this one blew me away.
It's a fictional story that shares the travel of one young would-be slave girl's travel from her quaint village in Africa all the way to Newfoundland, Canada.
It jerked a few tears from my eyes. One of the best stories told that I've ever read (:

The Montauk Project: Experiment in Time by Preston B.Nichols

Chronicles the most amazing and secretive research project in recorded history. Starting with the Philadelphia Experiment of 1943, invisibility experiments were conducted aboard the USS Eldridge that resulted in full-scale teleportation of the ship and crew. Forty years of massive research ensued, culminating in bizarre experiments at Montauk Point that actually manipulated time itself. The controversial lectures by Al Bielek on the Montauk Project and the Philadelphia Experiment are similar to the information in this book. The book includes diagrams and photos of the time-travel devices themselves, plus photocopies of documents and schematic diagrams.

You should definitely check out the book 'The Infinite Concept of Cosmic Creation' by Ernest L. Norman.

It is an educational book that is taken from tapes of lectures he gave back in the 50's. He is a psychic medium and channels Higher Souls that have lived on the planet before. It is a very interesting and overwhelming read but I find myself coming to enlightenment still with the lessons that it teaches.

Also check out the 5-book series called, 'The Pulse Creation' by Ernest L. Norman. These books are of the description of the experiences that Ernest L Norman had while astral traveling to "the other side" and talking with many people.

Just finished reading Dumbing Us Down by John Taylor Gatto. Very eye-opening.

His book, The Underground History of American Education can be read from his website.

One of the few books I have taken the time to read twice:

The Man Who Was Thursday
A Nightmare

You can download the book for free from that site.

In a surreal turn-of-the-century London, Gabriel Syme, a poet, is recruited to a secret counter-terrorist taskforce at Scotland Yard. Syme persuades Lucian Gregory, an anarchist, to lead him to the local terrorist cell, where he is elected as the cell's representative to the worldwide council of anarchists — the Central Anarchist Council — seven men, each using the name of a day of the week as a code name. His efforts to thwart the council's intentions and oppose all anarchic acts reveal a comical number of unlikely allies. Ultimately, Syme and his fellow champions of order confront the head anarchist, only to find their perception of order and chaos turned completely upside down. The novel's subtitle, "A Nightmare," is a summation of the frightening and increasingly surreal world in which Syme finds himself enmeshed.
