What next?

I'm looking for a really great novel to read next. Something published in the last five years. A book that will really blow me away. Something life-changing.

I'd appreciate any suggestions.

    I don't know about this life-changing aspect, but I would definitely recommend you "The Crimson Petal and the White" by Michel Faber. Certainly the most impressive novel _I_ have read in five years.

    The Thirteenth Tale has been greatly praised -- by none other than Frank Wilson in an excellent review http://www.philly.com/mld/inquirer/entertainment/books/15648252.htm

    Have not read it myself as i am waiting for the pbk.

    Karen of Eurocrime and Kim of Reading Matters have also recommended it, if my memory is functioning (which it may well not be)
