The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
You would think with my hyper interest in science-fiction I would have already read this, but no, I haven’t. I did watch the movie though which I have to admit was a mistake on my part - read the book first!
If you are interested in reading science fiction, this novel is a great starting point. The humor, interesting characters and alien-world universe will surely keep you entertained. The writing style is very relaxed and you can easily read the 215 page novel in one sitting (think plane ride).
I would encourage people NOT to watch the 2005 film first (unlike myself) because the novel is much better (not to mention your own imagination) but the film might be fun to watch afterward.
