I revisit The Screwtape Letters every five years or so, and it seems like each time a different part of it smacks me upside the head. Which is a good thing, I guess--means I'm not stuck permanently in any particular sinful groove.
I read this triology so many times in high school--it's holding up pretty well on reread 15+ years later. Honestly, my love for Zahn's version of the Star Wars future is probably why I never managed to muster much interest in the modern sequel cycle. They just can't hold a candle to Zahn's plots or ability to write the characters in continuity to their original movie selves.
This is a short list because I just finished a couple other books, so here's my planned vacation reading:
- Summer in Orcus by ursulav
- The Quiet Gentleman by Georgette Heyer
- ...actually, just a whole bunch of things by ursulav--her stuff really is a treat if you have any interest in fantasy
- The other two books in the Thrawn triology by Zahn
- For after vacation, I want to get my hands on some Raymond Chandler. Been a while since I read some good noir
