Book list for a boy

My baby brother, Ethan, is now 14. He’s an avid reader, just like me, and very into sci-fi. We had a great discussion about books while we were out for dinner tonight, and I came up with a back-of-an-envelope list of recommendations. These are books he hasn’t read yet that I predict he’ll enjoy:


Ray Bradbury’s “Fahrenheit 451”

Agatha Christie’s “And Then There Were None”

William Goldman’s “The Princess Bride”

John Green’s “The Fault in Our Stars”

Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World”

John Knowles’ “A Separate Peace”

Jack London’s “The Call of the Wild”

Ellen Raskin’s “The Westing Game”

Neal Shusterman’s “Unwind”

J. R. R. Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings”

Kurt Vonnegut’s “Cat’s Cradle”

Markus Zusak’s “The Book Thief”

Anything you’d want to add? I can’t wait to hear what he thinks of these!
