You want sci-fi or fantasy novels.
For sci-fi, I highly recommend "Santiago" by Mike Resnick, "Snow Crash" by Neal Stephenson, and the "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" series by Douglas Adams.
For fantasy, definitely go for Terry Pratchett's "Discworld" series, as well as basically anything by Garth Nix. You can't go wrong with either series.
Any of the mythology books written by Rick Riordan. My children especially love his Percy Jackson series.
He likes the Percy Jackson books! I will have to check out his other books. Thanks for responding.
You're welcome! I know he has a series on the Roman pantheon. I think he also has one on the Egyptian pantheon. They're all great!
At that age my oldest son liked Herbert's Dune series, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy books and the works of Asminov and Tolkien, while for my younger son it has been Huckleberry Finn, Tom Sawyer, Catcher In The Rye, Homer's epics and the works of Franz Kafka and Hubert Selby, Jr..
