Did a bit of searching and either I'm going blind and senile (a definite possibility) or we don't have a recent reading tread.

I think you ought to start with Neuromancer.But that just might be me.
I'm torn with Palahniuk. On one hand, Fight Club is a fucking awesome movie. I'd go as far as to say it's one of the few movies that is better than the source it was based on. But the book is good, too. However, I've tried reading several OTHER books of his and, yeah, it's like, the same fucking thing. Soooo... good writer? Not in my opinion. Is Fight Club awesome? Hell yeah.
I wonder if everyone's read Life of Pi by Yan Martel? Narrative style and story was interesting, but I think the tongue-in-cheek playfulness came off a bit too posh, too built for me.
