I haven't read a good book in quite a while... Anyone have any recommendations?
I like most genres. Some of my recent (and not so recent) favorites are The Road by Cormac McCarthy, most Nicholas Evans books, Angels and Demons by Dan Brown, [SIZE=-1]The Kite Runner by [/SIZE][SIZE=-1]Khaled Hosseini... I can't wait to read his new one, A Thousand Splendid Suns....

Try either of the following:
The Wind Up Bird Chronicles by Haruki Murakami - a superb, incredibly original story and mystery - very surreal and very pertinent.

White Noise by Don De Lillo - cracking prose - a gem on every page and believable, interesting characters.

I could go on and on, but these are the last two books which I read and thoroughly enjoyed.

Not sure if far fetched fiction lights your fire, but here's a few worth a look.
Robert Rankin never fails to tickle. His latest is called "The da da de da da code."
An American, Christopher Moore, has been lately touted as the new Vonnegut. I loved his "You suck" and "The lust lizard of melancholy cove."
Anything by Tom Holt is usually a hoot. His "Flying Dutch" is a scream.
Blowing my own trumpet, influenced by the likes of Douglas Adams and the above mentioned Wizards of Odd, you could try "Three agendas and one slim hope."
