Think about the book you are reading. Why do you think it was required reading? What qualities does it possess? What does it showcase?

The Count of Monte Cristo is an interwoven tale with many moving parts that all come together seamlessly at the end. Reading the book, for me, it's hard to see what you could leave out. Dumas knows how to tell a tale, how to keep an audience invested, and how to tie it all up at the end. I think these qualities are why it ends up being required reading.

I am currently reading "The Good Deed" by David Baldacci. I think it would be a great read for any true crime or detective novel reader because of its unusual setting and plot development. So far a good reading experience.
