It might be helpful if you listed a few novels that you have already read, the likes of which is in keeping with the kinds of plots you are most interested in. Let us know what it was you liked about that novel, and in which areas the novel happened to lack the punch you are craving, so we might be better able to suggest alternative reading.

Personally, I greatly enjoyed the "Dune" series by Frank Herbert, and the "Ender" series by Orson Scott Card. Both were intellectually thought provoking, and such sensuality and earthiness they contained was not overwhelmingly pornographic in nature.

I also enjoy novels by Taylor Caldwell because they are mostly about men in history that face incredible odds, or are philosophical studies that explore societal issues we all face thru the exploits of her fictional characters, not unlike Ayn Rand.

For something on a lighter read, and if you enjoy science fiction and stories based upon people living on other planets in far reaching solar systems, Alan Dean Foster has quite a listing ... I started by reading his series of novels about "Flinx" and went on to read most of his other novels. Good stuff if you like a well thought out story line and believable, if altogether rascally, characters.

Thriller? I can't recommend anything that falls under that category, however, 100 Years of Solitude by Garcia Marquez is an excellent novel and one I have read dozens of time.

If you're looking for a thriller, try Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None.
