For me to consider a book good, at minimum it needs strong, clear characters and well-written, interesting, non-predictable prose. To be great, it teaches me, expands my worldview, provides greater understanding and especially leaves me mourning at it's end, still wrapped up in characters that have become vivid and alive to me. This is a great book.
