The Coma - Alex Garland

This was a puzzling book, a quick, compulsive read. I feel like some of the images will stay with me and I'll be thinking them over for a while. The author wrote the screenplay for the excellent zombie movie 28 Days Later and I can see echoes of that movie in this book. The illustrations, which seem to be in the style of woodcuts (if they aren't actually woodcuts) added a lot to the story as well. I'd definitely seek out the other books by this author.
