A Visit from the Goon Squad is definitely unique. It is closer to a short story collection of interconnected tales than a novel. Each of the thirteen chapters follows a different protagonist and is written is a different style. The three chapters that stood out the most to me are "X's and O's", "Great Rock and Roll Pauses", and "Pure Language". The rest were rather meh.
