Lots of good choices here and I won't argue with them but Here is one not there. "Wolf Hall", its the Ann Boleyn story from the perspective of Thomas Cromwell. The guy rose from being the son of a blacksmith, to becoming the 2nd most powerful man in England.
This is at a time of great changes. The introduction of Protestantism into the English speaking peoples and subsequently the US. At a time slot relative to where Islam is now (about 1400 years in). With all the factional infighting and bloodshed over dogma .
Beautifully written and filmed, a must see.

@Redcupcoffee

Soap was awesome!

2

None, pick up a book.

@Redcupcoffee That would depend on the genre you prefer to read. I favor science fiction and fantasy, no surprise there I'm a geek.

In no particular order:
Stranger in a Strange Land; Robert Heinlein.
The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings; J.R.R. Tolkien
Adiamante, L.E. Modesitt, Jr.
The Dark Ability; D.K. Holmberg (beginning of a 7 book series with many other related series)
Dark Matter; S.W. Ahmed
Earth; David Brin
PastWatch, the Redemption of Christopher Columbus; Orson Scott Card
Ender's Game; Orson Scott Card

I'm also gay so here are a few that offer a different perspective.
Raising My Rainbow; Lori Duron
Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda; Becky Albertalli
Openly Straight; Bill Konigsberg

One thing to note if you decide to read anything by Robert Heinlein, most of his works were written in the 1940's and 1950's and as a result can at times be quite sexist and racist. Just keep in mind when they were written and enjoy the story he is telling without delving to deep into the biases of an author that has been dead since 1988.

There are many, many more that I could list: like
The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson, an epic 14 volume story, each volume is at least 800 pages.

Most of the authors I have listed here I have read many books from, and have enjoyed their works a great deal. I have around 1000 print books in my apartment, and another 1200 or so on my kindle. That is what I have left after moving to progressively smaller apartments over the last few years.
