There is a degree of subjectivity in loving a book. "Meh" was my reaction to EG. On the other hand, Speaker for the Dead was one of the best s.f. novels I read in the '80s; I found it exciting and thoughtful in ways EG just wasn't -- for me.This is such a personal opinion question. I've read in this thread of at least one favorite that I could not read to the end and several I felt were just "meh." But for me if I had to pick one Ender's Game.
Demons, by Dostoevsky. I’m reading it for the 8th or 9th time now. That’s the one I had in mind when I posted at the beginning of this thread.I haven't read many novels, but Replay by Ken Grimwood usually comes to mind first. I loved Wolf's Brother by Megan Lindholm too. I was very invested in the main character in both.
What novel do you love?

Yep - I love several and going outside of SF would open up more books but, focusing on SF, I'd have to go for the whole Foundation Trilogy (which is an actual omnibus, so one book, if not strictly a novel) as my most-loved book. I've re-read it several times but hadn't for a long time until last year and it was still a great experience.Hmm, not sure. I love a few perhaps, but maybe I’ll name just one: Foundation.
