The Red Dragon by Thomas Harris
Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry
The World According to Garp by John Irving
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
The Yearling by Majorie Kinnan Rawlins (First book I ever read more than once so it has to get a mention).

I also have great respect for:

The Pillars of the Earth - Ken Follett
A Great Deliverance - Elizabeth George
Gone With the Wind - Margaret Mitchell
Centennial - James Michner

and more will come to mind in about a minute....
