My favorite author is Garth Nix. He's best known for Sabriel, but I like all his series equally. My favorite single book is The Demolished Man, by Alfred Bester. I had to read it for a class, but it's better than the stuff I choose to read.
And the book is not always better; it just usually is better.

Bret Easton Ellis - American Psycho is imo the best book ever written (of all the books I've read so far)

Second best book: Chuck Palahniuk - Invisible Monsters

It's definitely one of his best books. Fun fact: the original release of the novel, released in 1978, was slightly abridged — but still rather long — but I believe that all versions of the book since the re-release in 1990 (which also updated a few of the then-modern pop culture references) have been the "uncut" version.

Dive in. It's a phenomenal read.

My aunt loves his work, but I've only read two books by Stephen King: The Green Mile and The Shining.

After I read the latter, I couldn't sleep with the lights off for a solid month.

I never said it was a bad book, it's just a huge book over 1,000 pages!!!!!!!!!!!! (Vegeta's voice)

The Stand is well worth the 1 000 pages that comprise it. It still has the best and likely most accurate portrayal of an apocalyptic scenario in the history of literature. Every detail needed to be in this book, I can assure you. It took me about a month to read (the extended edition, of course).

Fiction? Slapstick by Kurt Vonnegut. L'Étranger (The Stranger) by Albert Camus is close.
Non-fiction? The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx.

It's hard to name just one; so I'll throw a few of my favourites:

Cloud Atlas: David Mitchell - A triumph of narrative and a melting pot of different genres.

The Lord of the Rings: Tolkien

Silmarillion: Tolkien - Specifically the stories Beren and Luthien - and Turin Turambar.

Currently on the plate:
Mount and Blade: Warband – Napoleonic Wars
Chivalry
Super Mario 3D World – Finishing the last few levels.

I've read almost every SK novel. The Stand is one of his best, if not THE best.

Stephen King is my favorite author and I've read more of his books than any other writer.

However, my favorite book of all time probably isn't an SK one.

Most everyone has seen the movie, Jurassic Park. The novel is the best fiction I've probably ever read. It's a shame that Michael Crichton passed away so soon. He was super intelligent (I believe he graduated from Harvard). He could have done anything in life, but he chose to write really awesome books! YES!!!

I have so many books I love that I can't decide which one is the best. Entwined by Heather Dixon is super good, and so is Homefront by Doris Gwaltney is also really good. And don't get me started on Pride&Prejudice...

I was just about to say that one actually.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

I absolutely LOVE Jack Kerouac's On The Road. I also love Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas, Fear And Loathing On The Campaign Trail 1972, as well as Hells Angels, all by Hunter S Thompson. If you're into the modern-day murder mystery / crime books then I would recommend anything by Brian Freeman. The Bone House was my first book I read of his and it got me hooked on his writing so I guess that's the place to start.
Favourite book of all time? On The Road!
