I like science fiction. Started out with Orson Scott Card and Robert Heinlein in middle school. High school brought me William Gibson, who has a really unique and immersive writing style. The Neuromancer Trilogy- Neuromancer, Count Zero, Mona Lisa Overdrive- are excellently written and developed and well worth your time.
One good thing deserves another, and so perhaps better to introduce the Cyberpunk genre of the SF section of the bookstore to new readers would be Neal Stephenson's Snowcrash. Probably the most reader-friendly book I've ever read, the heroes name is Hiro Protagonist, and the novel is basically the lucid dream of a middle school nerd, with a mild version of RAPEAXE!!!! thrown in for good measure.
On the more adult level of genre Gibson started comes Islands in the Net, a story about a female Texan (yeah!) whose voyage to champion the cause of net neutrality makes her a political prisoner and a stranger to her own kind. Deep and meaningful, it invites the reader to re-examine the way novel technologies can disrupt the power structures of nation-states.
Not to end on a serious note, for Comic books close to the cyberpunk section of the SF wing, I vote for Warren Ellis's Transmetropolitan. Transmetropolitan is a comic book about the craziest journalist the world has ever seen. He's Hunter S. Thompson on jumpstart and carcinoma angels, with a set of filthy assistants at his side and the vindictive, sinister mechanations of corrupt politicians and the world they control in front of him. The City is his home, and he hates it. It's mutual. And the putrid narrative is dizzying in its pleasure. Would read again.
