The House of the Scorpion
All people will enjoy this book because there is a bit of romance, lots of adventure and action, and tons of suspense. It is an unique book because normal science fiction books are either utterly unrealistic, violent, or just plain confusing. However, this book grasps the reader firmly and does not let he/she go until the reader finishes the book and will feel truly satisfied. The reader is definitely glued to the book. This book gives you a true understanding of life, even though the setting of the book is in the future. The reader can easily relate to the situations in the book...although not directly. The reader will have to read behind the words, infer, and make tons of predictions. This book is one of the best books ever written!
