Infinite Jest - David Foster Wallace

Infinite Jest is a wonderfully circular, majestically fragmented, wildly ambitious literary triumph. It's the most astonishing expression of maximalism to be found in form of novel, with its vivid, neurotic, higly-energetic style, its nervous humor and absurd descriptions. It's an addictive book, an incredible story of self-liberation and self-imprisoning. Massively entertaining and rewarding and sad and beautiful, it is by far the best book I've ever read.
