Recommend a Book to Me

My reading time is very sparse at the moment, so I’m very picky right now about what I am reading for pleasure.

I don’t want just a good book—I’m looking for the crème de la crème. One of those rare books that draws the reader inside its world like few others do. One that rekindles the love of reading. It doesn’t have to be fiction either. The Glass Castle would absorb me.

So I’m asking you guys to recommend a book to me and to everybody else looking for a new read.

To keep this interesting, please narrow down your recommendation to ONE book. In a sentence or two, tell us what it is about.
