2. High Fidelity by Nick Hornby

This novel exemplifies how guy's view relationships... it's not flattering. It is, however, insightful and incredibly entertaining. Plus I'm pretty sure Hornby kicked off the whole list-craze. You're welcome Buzzfeed.

4. Exteriors and Interiors by C. McGee

There are only a handful of books that capture what it was like to be a twenty-something during the great recession. This is one of them. It also happens to be one of the best dark comedies in recent memory.

5. The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay

Do you remember how you felt after you saw Rudy? That's how you'll feel the whole time you're reading this book. It basically makes you want to just go out and be awesome.

6. The Stench of Honolulu by Jack Handey

Yeah, that Jack Handey. You thought he was just good for one-liners on SNL but it turns out he had a novel in him as well. It’s not the most substantive thing you’ll ever read but you’ll laugh multiple times per page.

8. The Education of a Poker Player by James McManus

Technically this book is connected stories not a novel, but close enough. McManus captures the maturation process as well as anyone. It's honest, poignant, and funny. It's even better if you were raised catholic.

9. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson

Sure it's cliche to have this book on this list, but whatever, it's awesome. You actually read it faster as it goes along. It's as if you've taken a cornucopia of drugs.
