If a gamer, you might be interested in a series of books about the witcher, based on which the toy was made. Here I really went straight, swallowed it in a couple of days) Someone correctly noticed about the genre, but I think we need to start with science fiction and fantasy, after all, it's not for nothing that our first fairy-tale books) This is interesting in any case + the development of fantasy and imagination ) here are a couple that you will definitely like:
Alexey Pekhov - "The Chronicles of Siala", "Guardian"
Robin Hobb - "The Saga of the Seers"
And then you can take on King's "Dark Tower" - this is generally a masterpiece , I haven't read anything more interesting.

We watched the film "Perfumer", I said: "yes, cool, but if you read the book, you would go crazy with how unusual smells are described, etc.", after that he was eager to read. Then he "departed" from reading for a long time. He said that he was very accustomed to Grenouille and there were many topics for communicating with friends, who, as it turned out, were also reading this book at that moment. In general, there was a delight.

I often offered to read something aloud, or read some significant excerpts from books, after which he had a desire to read it himself. But this does not need to be done in order to instill a love of reading. You don't need to change people without their desire.

Let him read about what he is interested in. If he is interested in football - let him read a book about football ... But in general, the Godfather of Mario Puzo will come very much

In general, it would be nice to start with a genre, at least approximately, at least from the opposite (for example, if you don't like elves and magic at all, then we don't touch fantasy).

I personally love fantasy and science fiction ... The first book that I reread the devil knows how many times is "Where We Are Not" by Mikhail Uspensky. The second is his "White horseradish in a hemp field". This is a humorous fantasy, very easy and pleasant to read. By the way, there are no elves there.

From science fiction I advise Lem "The Star Diaries of Yon the Quiet", the Stugatskys, especially "The Doomed City" if you want less fiction (this is generally almost a dystopia), and a cycle about the world of Midday, if more ... From the more modern - Lukyanenko, "Stars - Cold Toys" and "Star Shadow" (space fiction), "Labyrinth of Reflections" (cyberpunk), and "Patrols" (urban fantasy). By the way, "Patrols" have nothing in common with the films except the names of the characters.

Answer 7

Lukyanenko. Koziava, he, of course - but he wrote books well. And, most importantly, it suits your request very well.

I don't know as a teenager, but I once read "Shantaram" voraciously, without interruption, and now the sequel has been released. Maybe it will.

Specifically, you still need to read it first, but then it sucks in, - Terry Pratchett and Max Fry; very consonant, a pair and that's why I call it.

Answer 8

Start with the Harry Potter books. Completely childish books. Every storyline, every stroke and every character in this series is loaded with multi-verse philosophical content. Everything is thought out like a Rubik's Cube and exciting as a journey into yourself ...

Answer 9

I can recommend science fiction. Although I'm not a guy, I think that you should like the trilogy of Alexei Pekhov "The Chronicles of Siala". I can also recommend the historical novel "Shogun".

Answer 10

"Flowers for Algernon". I have never met a single person who did not like this book, including males who did not like to read.

Answer 11
May, 2021

Before this book, I was not fond of prose and reading in general. I tried to read, grasp and understand - a maximum of 5-10 pages.

About 3 months ago, I was interested in the work of Monroe Matsuo "Teach me to die".

A very strong and beautiful work. In addition, it is very easy to read and remains vividly on the mind.

I even advised a friend, he is also delighted.
