Minutes to Midnight by Michael Dobbs. It's about the Cuban Missile Crisis. He tries to tell the story exactly as it happens. Really interesting.

I'm a history nerd so I mostly read non-fiction.

The last good fiction I read was Say You're One of Them by Uwen Akpan. It is a collection of five short stories depicting African children as they deal with life in parts of Africa that are war-torn and/or have been ravaged by poverty. It's very sad in parts, but Uwen Akpan is really a good writer.
