I want to become immersed in a really good book that will transport me to another place in another time. Im open to any and all recommendations if anyone has any ideas.

To narrow it down my preferences are sci-fi, fantasy, spiritual, and some horror (mostly supernatural thrillers). Thanks :)



i've read cloudatlas and black swan green which i both love! he's such a talented writer.

You might think it's a Fantasy novel, but it actually is SciFi. There are two more story threads that seems unconnected with each other, but it all comes together.

A challenging story I just finished is Riddley Walker by Russell Hoban. A post apocalyptic plot in Great Britain that is totally unique.
