Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman Wizard's First Rule by Terry Goodkind Cell by Stephen King
The Dream Cycle of H. P. Lovecraft
That's all the specific books I can think of this moment. Most of my fiction books tend to come from either the fantasy or the horror sections of the bookstore, so my recommendations are slightly limited. The Terry Goodkind book I've recommended is the first of a (rather long) series, so if you don't want to start a series I'd stay away from that. As for authors, Neil Gaiman's works are generally enjoyable (including his Sandman series if you're into comic books), as are Stephen King's if you like nontraditional (for the most part) horror. Uh, David and Leigh Eddings, Dean Koontz, Anthony O'Neill and Gregory Maguire are also fairly decent authors.
If you're looking for non-fiction books as well, there's more I can recommend, though I get the impression that you're inquiring about fiction books.

Barbara Kingsolver - Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. Nonfiction, about her family's attempt to eat seasonal food they grew themselves or bought locally. Excellent study of how much of our food is grown, shipped, engineered, etc. With recipes.
