Man You're Crazy: Books with unreliable (and sometimes just plain crazy) Narrators

I really enjoy reading books narrated by unreliable narrators. It is so fascinating to me! I've complied a  list of books with crazy narrators.

Patrick Bateman from American Psycho by Brent Easton Ellis
Holden Caulfield from The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger 
Esther Greenwood from The Bell jar by Sylvia Plath 
Humbert Humbert from Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov 
Lia from Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson 

Some would argue that Nick Carroway from The Great Gatsby should make this list too... but I'm unsure of how I feel about that. What do you think? Whose your favorite crazy narrator?
