The first book that comes to mind is "The Tin Drum", by Günther Grass. I love how the book is narrated by Oscar Matzerath, and the different ways of telling the story of his mother, father and uncle. It is set in Danzig before, during and after World War II, and is a part of Grass' Danzig-trilogy.

even though many, many people have read it, and its one of those things everyone's heard of - The Count of Monte Cristo . i say this because most people i know get there idea of what happens from the movie, which is completely different from the book, most probably because a 2 hour movie cant hope to get half of the complexity of the book, which shows the count for the true genius he is, but also makes the reader think about the morality of his actions and revenge in general

Kafka On the Shore - Haruki Murakami.

Once you start reading Murakami, you can't stop (well, I can't anyway)
