Ohhhh… there are several!!
I LOVE The Hawk & the Dove Trilogy by Penelope Wilcock – you should look it up (and pay NO attention to the really bad cover art. They ruin so many books with the crap cover art!!)
Also, Extrememly Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safron Foer. An original and beautiful and FUNNY book.
I love the Count of Monte Cristo – that story is fantastic and never gets old.
