Phantastes, A Faerie Romance

by George MacDonald

This fantastic masterpiece has gripped my imagination since I first picked it up a few years ago. George MacDonald, the father of fantasy who deeply influenced Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Madeleine L'Engle, Charles Williams, and practically every current fantasy author, crafted this tale of a man's adventures into fairyland which is worth rereading many times over. The story is feels like a collection of short episodes as Anodos travels further and further into fairyland and simultaneously into the fantastic depths of his own soul. Creative like few others, I highly recommend this as a truly great book.
