If you're willing to put in at least a month of hard labor, DFW's Infinite Jest is worth the read.

And if you're not you could read his essay collections -

"A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again" the title essay of which is now available on the internet and is a terrific introduction to the late great American author (http://www.amazon.com/Supposedly-Fun-Thing-Never-Again/dp/03...)

"Consider the Lobster" (http://www.amazon.com/Consider-Lobster-David-Foster-Wallace/...)

Some of the few pieces of physical literature I actually own and chase back every time I lend them to someone.

this is possibly my all-time favorite book. i just thought "oblivion" itself was more appropriate this thread.
