Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (first two parts) by Douglas Adams easily takes the cake as my favourite sci-fi book. It's also by far the funniest.
Second to fifth place is taken by more serious ones:
2. Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A, Heinlein
3. Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch by Philip K. Dick
4. Solaris by Stanislaw Lem
5. Rendezvous with Rama by Arthur C. Clarke

Beside the sci-fi elements, all of the above possess a significant philosophical examinations of existence and that's probably the main reason (or maybe even requirement) for being in my top 5. I heartily recommend all of them.
