Anything by Cormac McCarthy. It's not comedy though. Great fiction. My favorite is probably "Blood Meridian" but the whole "Border Trilogy" is phenomenal, as well as "Suttree". He wrote "No Country for Old Men" too.

I thought about posting to read The Hunger Games when I saw your post on Sunday, that was when I was 4 chapters into it. Since then I finished that book, read the follow-up (Catching Fire) and am now halfway through the final book, MockingJay, of the series.

It is just some fiction, but easy to read and a really fun story. Kind of gory when you step back and realize it is about a bunch of kids killing each other for entertainment. If you like the old movie Running Man, which I loved, you will like the books.
