Christmas: Perfect books for young men who loves reading.

We have compiled a shortlist of four books to get a hold of before Christmas.

In these modern times, where everything seems to be focused on computer games and gaming consoles – it is nice to remind our young men and adolescents that there is something called a book – a magical place where you have to create the visual imagery for yourself, instead of having it done for you. So, here’s a list of four perfect books for young men who loves reading.


Featured authors in this ‘Perfect Christmas gifts for young men who loves reading’ list: J.K. Rowling, Alexander Van Dorph, Dan Brown and Donna Tartt.


The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling.


"A big novel about a small town, The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling's first novel for adults. 
It is the work of a storyteller like no other." 


Those of us who have read / seen the Harry Potter series, which would be most of us (see video below if haven’t – really though?), know about J.K.’s prowess as a author. Her work is filled to the brim with astonishing storylines and characters that have a way of finding their way into your heart.


Cognitive Disturbance by Alexander Van Dorph.

“Los Mirra.

A dystopian metropolis run by nefarious criminal gangs and corrupt politicians. Amidst the ironclad skyscrapers of the city we find Leopold Von Tiller, a man who has grown successful despite the ruthless conditions. His fortune takes a turn for the worse as he encounters brutality with a deadly outcome. When death strikes, Leopold finds himself waging war on several fronts.


Whether throwing punches in a primitive bar brawl or exchanging sharp, malevolent words in a boardroom over a hostile takeover, the basics are the same – outmaneuver the opposition, strike with deadly precision and ultimately destroy your adversary. Leopold soon learns how these rules apply to every human being, and must adapt to the unfolding situation or see himself devoured in the failure to do so.


Can he endeavour at the heart of ferocity, or will hatred take a hold and tear him apart? Packed with intense action, unreciprocated love and betrayal, Cognitive Disturbance is a compelling read that will appeal to fans of crime thrillers.”

This synopsis is enough for us – we wantsss it.




The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.

Composed with the skills of a master, The Goldfinch is a haunted odyssey through present day America and a drama of enthralling force and acuity.


Inferno by Dan Brown.

Synopsis: “In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces . . . Dante’s Inferno.

Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust . . . before the world is irrevocably altered.”

Dan Brown, the former English teacher, has shown his mastery as a pop book seller – his sales records and accomplishments speak for themselves. Inferno is perhaps his best work as of yet.


If you want to get your hands on some books for Christmas – these four books would be the ones to gun for.


Oh, and you might have to make your way through the ferocious Xbox One and PS4 armies – so bring a Wii Nunchuck or two.
