The Iain M Banks series of Culture books is probably as good as SF gets. Also the Wasp Factory. He's a 'proper' novelist writing non-SF as Iain Banks.

Classics like Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse 5 and Breakfast of Champions too.

His ideas are put out there but don't get beaten to death like a lot of pulp sci-fi.

And so it goes.
