Books That Make You Go Hmmm…

Books Hmmm...

Over the years, I’ve read some books that really make me think.  Sometimes it’s simply me wondering how the author came up with the story being told.  Other times, it’s wondering how stories continue after the book ends.  Every now and then I wonder why I continue to read a crappy book when there are so many good books out there!  Bah! Some books really grab me and continue to make me wonder even years after reading them.

Here are a few that left a lasting impression on me and made me really think.
