You could try HEART SHAPED BOX by Joe Hill (Stephen King's son).
or AMERICAN GODS by Neil Gaiman.
CABINET OF CURIOSITIES by Lincoln Child and Douglas Preston (This is a creepy cross between James Patterson and Stephen King- Murder mystery/thriller type)
LORD OF LIGHT by Roger Zelazny (Sci-fi award winning classic)

Read some reviews on Amazon of those and see what you think.
Hope that helped.

I need to buy a couple of books for my 21 year old grandson.

He says he likes James Patterson, Steven King (I seriously doubt he's read more then one or two books by him and am shocked he was even able to come up with any authors name) or any Magical books. He says he's read all The Lord of the Rings and Harry potters in the past. I remember reading him the first Harry Potter while babysitting when he was little. Being ADHD he interrupted (constantly) sometimes about the story just as many times about something from left field.

I've never known him to be a reader unless he was stuck in his room on restriction. Yea this grandboy has spent a ton of time on restriction not to mention juvenile hall for crap like taking a golf cart (where his dad golfs) on a joyride and then getting into a wreck with it, parents having to pay for a new one...

Why I need help is I'm female, I don't think he would like the types of books I was gaga for such as Sookie Stackhouse, however a story along those lines where the target audience is Male would probably work. Even SciFi can seem magical, he's just never read such a book yet.

What would be a "10" book I could get him?
One that grabs from the first few pages so he won't toss it?
