24. I so have to agree with "Ghost Story"! I often use that as an example
of a book that one cannot put down. The first hundred or so pages were kinda boring, but holy shit, once the story gets moving it's unstoppable!

I'm glad someone else knows that book!

Others with great narrative pull are:

David Eddings

Hemingway

Twain

Douglas Adams

Dan Brown (yeah, I know, not a great story constructer, but he does write in an insane page-turner kind of way)

Neil Stephenson

Saul Bellow

JK Rowling

Bruce Feiler

and the woman who wrote "Secret Life of Bees"
