I'm currently reading Christopher Paolini's Inheritance cycle to my nine year old son, and they're very good. My son loves them. Paolini was 15 when he wrote the first one...which is scary
The novel follows the adventures of John Paul Ziller and his wife Amanda—lovable prophetess and promiscuous earth mother, inarguably the central protagonist—who open "Captain Kendrick's Memorial Hot Dog Wildlife Preserve," a combination hot dog stand and zoo along a highway in Skagit County, Washington. Other characters in this rather oddball novel include Mon Cul the baboon; Marx Marvelous, an educated man from the east coast; and L. Westminster "Plucky" Purcell, a former college football star and sometime dope dealer who accidentally infiltrates a group of Catholic monks working as assassins for the Vatican. In so doing Plucky discovers a secret of monumental proportions dating to the very beginning of Christianity.

Totally agree the Discworld series is awesome. Have read them all and love them all. Especially love Pyramids and Small Gods and all the Rincewind books.

All time fave: Margaret George's "Autobiography of King Henry VIII". I've read it at least twenty times.....it's incredible.
I really like "Replay" by Ken Grimwood. It's a reincarnation/time travel novel that always makes me contemplate the different doors that I have walked through in my life and ask "what if?"
