The Naked God (Really all of the NIghts Dawn Trilogy by Peter F. Hamilton)
The Dark Beyond the Stars <---- kickass
Revelation Space/Redemption Ark by Alastair Reynolds.
Snow Crash was pretty good too.
Robert Silverberg, Star of Gypsies (read that about 6 times in the span of 2 years)
Neal Stephenson, The Diamond Age, or A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer
Robert Heinlien/Spider Robinson, Variable Star (Found it in the bargain bin... absolutely the best dollar I will ever spend)
Seems to me I picked up Variable Star not long after it first came out in hardback. After being so long not having heard Heinlein's voice, that was so very refreshing! Sure, in a lot of ways, it was a redux of some of RAH's juvenile novels (Time for the Stars comes to mind), but it still had its own identity ... and I am really, really glad of that.
Forgot about "Ready Player One". Amazing. I'd move it into my 2nd place. If you happened to grow up in the 80's you should read it. Even better on audio.
