Things to Read: Favorite Books

I’ll be traveling to Hong Kong later this month. So as sort of a preparation, I decided to re-read Fragrant Harbour by John Lanchester; one of my favorite books.

This made me think about, what it was about my favorite books that made them stand out from all the others. So here is (in no particular order) a list of some of my other favorite (fiction) books. What they all have in common, is that they consist of multiple, interleaving plot lines, sometimes spanning multiple decades. The story is told from multiple perspectives and the whole is revealed only over time as the different pieces fall into place.
