It's not really a stock market investing book, but The Big Short by Michael Lewis (the same guy who wrote the book Money Ball about baseball which also was a movie starring Brad Pitt) is an excellent read regarding Wall Street practices.

Another book by Lewis is Liar's Poker, again about Wall Street.

All of those are non-fiction but read like a novel. He has some humorous stories in each one.

I've never read any of his books so I can't really make a recommendation one way or the other. Sorry.

His books are very enjoyable and even the most dense among us can accidentally learn something through his reading.
