Oooh. I second White Teeth and The Time Traveler's Wife.

Also thought of Jonathan Coe...The Rotter's Club, and House of Sleep are really good.

Oh my god, I have not read one book on here. I am feeling quite the illiterate.

But I'm printing it...thanks for providing a summer reading list!

Oh! _Middlesex_! I have read one! But I didn't really get it...

I was just going to reccomend The Time Traveller's Wife. I loved it. It was one of the better reads I've had in ages. It's a huge book, but I couldn't put it down, so I sadly flew through it in just a few short days. I'm also reading Devil in a White City. I think it's historically fascinating. I think the writing is a tad bit awkward, but egaging enough.
