Geek Love: A Novel - Katherine Dunn
This book won't be for everyone, it is disturbing to say the least. I think that the disturbing nature of the story and its undeniable uniqueness is what pushes it to spot no. 2.

The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald
This a book that flows like poetry. Not popular in its time, but has turned into a classic. One of my favorite of all time, hence it's place at no. 1.
