I finished The Fuller Memorandum on the train, though. I hesitate to quote the blurb, but it really is a Lovecraftian spy-thriller and if you think you might like that... start with the first one, The Atrocity Archives.

ETA: Except I seem to have finished that one twice. What I actually finished on the train was the Tube book, which I would recommend to anyone at all interested in the history of railways.

While not sleeping I read New Model Army (Adam Roberts) which, um. Roberts' writing is usually very good, but the ending of this one leaves me with that New Wave short-story feeling of uncertainty as to whether I didn't understand it or it was in fact complete gibberish - but that in either case story got quietly forgotten in the name of art.
