What are some books that you have read that you would recommend to a person? Why would you recommend it? Was it really good or was it bearable?

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
For a number of reasons. First, the characterization is incredible. All of the characters are well rounded creations with Scout Finch, the narrator of the tale being one of the most beautifully realized fictional characters that I have ever come across. Lee's writing is expressive and genuinely elegant in its economy. The novel is filled with heart: it's uplifting, funny and, at times, heartbreaking. It also has a really strong moral core that never patronizes the reader and never hits the reader of the head with simplistic platitudes, instead taking a deep, even-handed look at the complex issues that it deals with. It's about the most perfect novel that I have ever read.

Gritty, Funny Tales of a NYC Limo Driver. http://www.amazon.com/gp/pdp/profile/A2E41T4VWMJ0U0. I like first-person books like this. This New York City limo driver tells hilarious passenger stories: many tales of the self-important, the socially inept, the priapic and the certifiable. He also gives great commentary about the limo industry. During my traveling days, I used a lot of limo services and I wish I had this book back then. The trade talk and inside baseball chat would have made my work easier. I hope the author writes more of the same.
Ah, the point of the thread becomes clear.
