Hewp! I need a recommendation, for a gift for a boy:
Said boy doesn’t read many novels and prefers nonfiction. I don’t think he understands that novels can also teach you something (about the place where it’s set, can be historical fiction, etc.) and that not all fiction is as boring as what he was made to read in high school. I did just get him to start reading some Malcolm Gladwell books. He works in finance and is interested the architectural history of cities (specifically New York), the Rockefeller/JP Morgan/Carnegies, and sports. (And yes, I do refer to him as The Square).
I’m thinking something along the lines of Stephen King, Dan Brown, Richard K. Morgan, Stieg Larsson… something he’d read and be like “Wow! This is like an action movie but in a book!” but that is also intelligent, and maybe has a historical fiction element? I know that’s a lot of parameters but it doesn’t have to meet all of them haha. Any suggestions of similar authors, or favorites by any of the aforementioned?
