Faces in the Crowd - Valeria Luiselli
This is one of those books where you have no idea what is going on most of the time, but it is still an enjoyable read. I don't know what it is exactly, but the experience of reading this novel is amazing. 

The writing is beautifully disjointed, or rather it is "a horizontal novel, told vertically. A novel which has to be told from the outside in order to be read from within." 

I loved the ideas expressed in the novel and how they made their way into the narration. The voice of the narrator shifts throughout the novel, which is utterly confusing, but also spell-binding. 

The entire experience is altogether quite difficult to put into words, but it is perfect in its imperfections. A wonderful read that is beautiful and haunting.
