I second shantaram, 1984 and a thousand splendid suns.
Too many men by lily brett. It's about a woman who takes her holocaust survivor father back to Poland. The main character is hard to like but the book is fabulous.
A civil action. A lawyer takes on polluting companies in a class action.
The poisonwood bible by Barbara kingsolver. It's about 4 sisters and their mother living with their missionary father in the Congo in the 50/60s.
Eat, pray, love is okay if you can stand the self obsessed-ness.
I know there's heaps more. I'll think and come back.

My favorite and the last book I've read was The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. It was so amazing that I started reading it for the second time right after the first one!

Wow, lots I love that have already been suggested (Pride and Prejudice, To Kill A Mockingbird, The Bronze Horseman, The Other Boleyn Girl, Harry,
I'm currently reading the A Song of Fire and Ice series (Game of Thrones). I'm up to the fifth book (FINALLY) and I'm loving it!
I'm also enjoying the Hunger Games series.
Some other books I liked:
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
The Girl in Times Square by Paullina Simons: A girl is finishing college and then her flatmate disappears. Enter a detective who is trying to solve the case. Other life changing things happen to her. Sorry that's really vague - I just don't want to ruin what happens!
The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett which is set during the twelfth century England which tells the story of the building of a magnificent cathedral. The story is told from the view point of different characters that live in and around the town where the cathedral is being built.
For other chick lit I like Maggie Alderson, Monica McInerney, Paullina Simons.
KatieKitten - I really like Fall of Giants by Ken Follett which is set during WWI. He is writing a sequel which should be out soon which is set during WWII and is the next generation of characters.
