What makes a good book?

I’m curious to hear what you think makes a good book. I want one that is entertaining and keeps me on the edge of my seat. I want one that I can’t put down even to go to bed. I want a happy, satisfying ending. I don’t mind a lot of things going wrong during the story but I want a resolution at the end that leaves me feeling content that the characters would be all right. Gone With the Wind was a great story but I still replay that ending and have to come up with my own that gives a more definite resolution to Scarlett and Rhett’s story.
