Satin Island by Tom McCarthy
I often feel with some of these brainy works of fiction might I might be missing the point, but to me this is an elegant social commentary on modern life. The protagonist, U, is an anthropologist who is employed by a multinational corporation for the main purpose of commentating on us, the modern man, and to put us within the context of all man. Yes, it is a bit lofty, with a minimal plot, but it is a joy to read. Don't miss it.
