The Godfather by Mario Puzo - Everyone has seen the movie dozens of times, but if you haven't read the book you're doing yourself an injustice. Puzo's depiction of life inside the Mafia is at once romantic and terrifying. With extraordinary character development and a tight plot line, The Godfather has all the elements of the classic Greek tragedies from 25 odd centuries ago. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Omerta.
The Catcher in the Rye book cover (btw brilliant book). I've seen many different Catcher in the Rye book covers, but I've never seen any quite as good as this one....The fact that the artist has only used two colours, orange and black makes it minimalistic and memorable. The smoke from the cigarette changing into a bird is pretty awesome.
