The recent post on Books To Read Before You Die sure set y'all on fire. It was interesting to read your comments, particularly those of you who said "hey, what about this one" and mentioned some really good books.
To that end, I'm interested in hearing your nominations for O! Most Awefull Novel of the millennia (more or less) So Far.
(remember that awefull is not awful, and for those who need further explanation, dig around in the Snarkives for the post about Amulet of the Samarkand).
You can nominate three novels. They should be relatively recent, within ten years of first publication. Novels you loved, novels that made you see the world in a new way, novels that made you give up writing for a month cause you couldn't imagine writing that well.
Here are mine:
The Intuitionist by Colson Whitehead
Motherless Brooklyn by Jon Letham
Winter's Bone by Daniel Woodrell
What are yours?
