His was the first book I ever sat down and read cover to cover with putting it down only to pee.
That's all I got to say 'bout that.

Though not a novel, without question my favorite book is Man's Search for Meaning by Dr. Victor Fankl (especially the first half, but logotherapy is interesting in it's own right.)
Truthfully, I'm not familiar with French books. My brother is huge into the French culture, but for some reason, I am not. Probably because I've never felt welcome in France. Historically (250+ years ago), my family was from Alcace Lorraine which was German at the time, but now French. I much prefer German beer and schnitzel to French crepes and wine, but that's just me and may be the source of my disdain.
As for novels, I would probably go with Of Mice and Men (but Catcher is right up there).
