I’ve been in a reading slump lately. It’s been, um, longer than I care to say since I actually completed a book that I started reading and if I recall correctly that book wasn’t even something I was reading for entertainment.

So here’s my question to you, the loyal FirstStep readers (both of you): What book would you suggest I read? I’m looking for mind candy here since I don’t want to think too much. We’re aiming for pure escapism. Sci-fi or fantasy would be perfect, but nothing that’s the “first in a vast epic series” sort of thing. Romance, western, mystery and true-crime are out of the running.

Yeah, I know. I’ve put a lot of qualifiers in there. Feel free to make the case for something which would break the rules but you’d still like to suggest.
