There are few. For me, 'Virgin Suicides' is a good example. Or 'Dead Poets Society', although in this case the book was based on the script so it's a completely different thing.

Oh my goodness! Why have I not read this before now? Can not put it down. Brilliantly written! Great but strange book about a group of college students in Vermont. I can't give the storyline away but the imagery is amazing.

Re-reading all my Carl Hiaasen books at the moment, they are excellent, caustic and satirical. He really does have a knack for describing the scum of this earth.

On Strip Tease at the moment, seriously you should read this book it is so much better than the shitty film with Demi Moore.

Just finishing Graham Swift's "Wish You Were Here". I've read a few of his books before and loved them, this didn't disappoint, either.

I stuck with it cos it gets decent reviews and wasn't too long, thanksfully, but Rose the protagonist drove me mad. Some parts were skillfully written; others were a bit meh.
