What was the last book you've read AND loved?

I *really* like to read. I mean REALLY like. There are few books which I tend to come back every few years, but when it comes to new books I often have trouble picking new titles, being cautious about reviews, sales numbers and such. I'm more likely to read the book someone has recommended, so if you're anything like me, here is what I recommend:

The last new book I've read and loved was The Martian (actually "read" is only half-right, I listened to the audio-book, voiced by amazing R.C. Bray, the best narrator I have ever heard).

If you haven't read it yet, The Martian tells the story of a lonely engineer/botanist stranded on Mars. What I particularly liked about it was the main character, whom I relate to in a big way. The way he approaches problems mirrors my thinking and his sense of humor... :lol:

What about you?

Lolo: That would be Metro 2033? If so, I read it recently as well, and liked it quite a bit.

Disappointing movies deserve another topic haha :)
The biggest disappointment I had was with Ender's Game.
