The Raw Shark Texts

is great fun.  I still can’t decide if it is a "good bad book," like Shantaram, or a "good good book," but it’s a good book of some kind or another. 

Imagine a cross between Memento and The Time Traveler’s Wife and you get halfway there.  There’s also plenty on when cheap talk equilibria matter (I hope you’ve seen Saw) and some visual influences from graphic novels and alternative typographies.  In any case it should become a big hit.
