Invisible - Paul Auster. Definitely my favourite book of the year, and also my favourite book by Paul Auster, whose books I've been reading throughout the summer. The story itself is captivating, but the style of the book is one of the best things about it. It tells a continuous story, but is told from the point of view of several authors, and with different styles (changes from first to second to third person, for instance). On top of that, the authors occur in the main story itself, interact with other people in the main story while retelling it, and even deliberately change and obscure information.

Although this may sound very complex, the book is actually not that hard to follow. Highly recommended!
