Hmmmm... I could list many and many here. First one off the top of my head would be Bag of Bones by Stephen King - that one just blew my mind.

Just had to mention too... If you want to read a truly hysterical book, the guys might not like it though, pick up "Getting Over It" by Anna Maxted.

Mine is Angela's Ashes. The family was dirt poor,but the humor that Frank McCourt writes about makes this book very enjoyable.

Great topic, my favorite book is definitely Choke by Chuck Palahniuk; but really anything by him is great:

Invisible Monsters
Survivor
Fight Club

Other favorites:
To Kill A Mocking Bird
The Fuck-Up by Arthur Nersesian

The Maribou Stork Nightmares by Irvine Welsh. I also love anything by Edward Gorey, honarable mention to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Hell's Angels by Hunter S. Thompson....
I also second the Screwtape Letters...

"Master and Margarita" by Mikhail Bulgakov

"The Good Terrorist" by Doris Lessing

"Rebecca" by Daphne du Maurier

Terry Pratchett's "Discworld" novels - too many titles to mention, although the Nightwatch books are probably my favourite series within the series. Sam Vimes kicks ass!

"Angela's Ashes" by Frank McCourt

"Guardians of the Flame" books by Joel Rosenberg. The best fantasy series ever, IMO.

I am reading this at the moment- very clever book, I really like the way that Irvine Welsh writes and I love the way that he writes in a dialect, makes it feel a lot more authentic

Hell yes, it's his best work in my humble opinion. Check out Filth if you have a chance next. Hehe tape worms...
