Paradise Lost - John Milton
Ariel - Sylvia Plath
The Adventures of Jimmy Corrigan - C.F. Ware
I know that's 5, but I'm a maverick.
To add weight to my recommendations, here's a picture of a tiger jumping off a boat:

That picture is quite Life of Pi, also recommended.

On a related note I'm reading a recently published collection called 'The Great Philosophers' which has no Hegel, no Kant, no Locke...strange.
