    Eh, I have too many favorites. I'll pick a novel though.

    I didn't think you were being snarky.

    I think LOTR will always be number one for me, not in small part because it was a good friend at a rough time during my formative years.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    Try Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson. Three books. Best of anything I've ever read.

    Also, there is a book called True Names by Verner Vinge that I liked a lot.

    Check out "the readers' list" at http://www.modernlibrary.com/top-100/100-best-novels/

    If you study how Atlas Shrugged was put together, you will discover that it is one of the most complex, if not the most complex, and well-constructed novel in history.

    As for my favorites novels - they actually consist of much lighter story-telling than Atlas.
