Novels that I read when I could be reading History:
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, any of the Sherlock Holmes stories
Michael Chabon, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay & The Final Solution

Novels that all modern Germanists should read:
Thomas Mann, The Magic Mountain & Dr. Faustus
