Bleak House by Charles Dickens. Personally, I think this is Dickens' best. And not only my favorite Dickens novel, but one of the best books I have ever read. This book is a rare gem, and an incredibly complex and moving tale of love and hate, jealousy and selflessness, cruelty and kindness, grudges and forgiveness, commonness and nobility, contentment and despair. Don't miss out!
