I like the cultures imbeaded throughout the books and all the fully fleshed out characters, but the plot twists are very similar from book to book.

Other good books are the Ender's series by Orson Scott Card and Psion, Catspaw, and Dreamfall by Vinge.

I know there are millions and millions of books out there, but what are your absolute favorites?
"The Mists Of Avalon" by Marion Zimmer Bradley.
This is one of those books that you recommned to people but you don't actually lend your own copy,you buy a new one for them!
This book is just so amazing.If you like the Arthurian times and the tales of that time,you will love this book! I strongly suggest it for women only,it is a book about women for women!

"True Women" by Janice Windall Woods. A true story of Texas women after the fall of the alamo and the turbulant times of the cival war. These woman were true survivors and strong women!

My aunt lent that to my sister on Easter weekend, and when she was done she gave it to me. I thought it was a really good book, although if my aunt had actually read it first I don't think she'd have let us read it, considering the fact that she's fairly religious. But like I said, I really liked it. I'd recommend it, too. ;)
