Looking for great books that grab ahold of your hair and force you to read them in one damn sitting. My nook needs them.

Last one that did this to me was The Road. You?

The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami. It's so surrealistic that it's like dreaming

The Enemy by Charlie Higson. It's about a plague that hits all of the adults and turns them into mindless monsters intent on eating children, and how one group of children survive the streets of London.

Beatrice & Virgil by Yann Martel. Maybe because it was so short, and didn't have chapters =P It's kind of an odd book, but I found it intriguing.

This book actually took me 4 sittings, but it only happened because I got very sick in between these days. It was "Eddie Trunk's Essential Hard Rock and Heavy Metal". I already knew a lot of rock n' roll and heavy metal before reading this book, but it gave me an incredible insight on bands I love so much! And when I learned that the Vol. 2 was coming, I felt so happy... Totally recommended for anyone who's interested in rock n' roll! "D

'The Hobbit' by (my lord and savior) Tolkien - I re-read it (after several years) in lieu of having seen the film and being convinced that Peter Jackson took many'a'liberties with the plot. I was right.

'Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman' by Haruki Murakami - Murakami's been my obsession as of late. He blends everyday life and the fantastical world so well.

Impossible by Nancy Werlin

The only reason I read it in 1 sitting is because the owner let me borrow it for a day. It's really, really good but not my favorite though. Some parts kinda spooked me.

Usually, I read books in more than 2 sittings. That way I could appreciate and absorb the story better. I'm a slow reader... LOL.

If I have the time, I'll read any book in one or two sittings if it's interesting enough. I read most of the last Sword of Truth book in one sitting, and I read the entire Hunger Games trilogy in 4-5 sittings.

anything by David Gemmel, for me :) ...which, given that he has a few in the 300 to 400 page range, says something. For me, that's sitting around reading an entire day, and usually earning a splitting headache for my trouble, because I don't feel like embarking on the quest for 'wherever I lost my damn glasses' :D

It's detective fiction with werewolves, but it's an excellent novel.

Slaughterhouse-Five

Actually the only reason I was able to read it in one sitting is because it's a relatively short novel, but I really did enjoy reading it.
