Im surprise to see this suggestion here, but yeah, that's a really great and quite unique book (except maybe for the end).

Another "must read" for me is The Book of the New Sun by Gene Wolfe. It's a mix of fantasy and science-fiction set in the far far future, when our Sun is dying. The main charater, a torturer, and the world he is living in, are quite fascinating.
