I'm off on my hols soon, and I intend to do nothing but eat, sleep, drink, read and drink some more for the whole fourteen days of it. This is the only time I get real quality time with books, so I don't want to waste any of it on mediocre stuff. I want to read novels that will make my hair stand on end, make me feel something (other than bored). I want page turners. I want perfect novels. Great characterisation, verisimilitude, story by the bucketful, action, pace. It doesn't have to be any particular genre.
So, in your view, which are the most perfect novels you have read?
