If he likes fiction – James Patterson and Bill Clinton have a new “thriller” called “The President is Missing.” I love anything by David Baldacci – and he has a new one – “The Fallen.” I am reading Chris Matthews “Bobby Kennedy” and loving it And I am reading the biography of Robin Williams called “Robin” by Dave Itzkoff. A fun memoir is an older one called “Blue Latitudes: Boldly Going Where Captain Cook Has Gone Before” by Tony Horwitz.
The Sympathizer by Viet thanh Nguyen if he is into Saigon and espionage. Great book. Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari and Ten Types of Human by Dexter Dias if he like non fiction.
the Prize by Daniel Yergin. about the greed, politics in the oil industry.
Get Capone by Johnathan Eig is very good.
Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
Natchez burning series by Gregg Iles. Husband could not put them down. Start with 1st one “ The Quiet Game “.
Oldie, but goodie. Rogue Warrior by Richard Marchinko
MY husband’s favourite author is Clive Cussler
My dad loves James Lee Burke and Clive Cussler.
I’m reading a recommendation from my boyfriend that he might like. The Big Bounce by Elmore Leonard, or anything by that author. He writes crime fictions
Tom Brokaw’s The Greatest Generation.
My husband likes Hampton Sides’ historical non-fiction.
My husband just read the Witch of DelRay by Karen Dybis and Terror of Champions by Tom Stanton and really enjoyed both. They are more documentary style.
Unbroken if he likes historical memoirs. Also The Boys in the Boat. Same genre.
There’s a few books with the title unbroken! do you have the author?
@Angelika Laura Hillenbrand
@Mary Thanks Mrs Mary!
Why restrict it to men? A great book can be relatable to many
Just a question I posed to the men. As you can see many answered without asking this question ?
You know, men can read the same books that women read….
They surely can! However he isn’t interested in what I read.. so I wanted a man’s outlook! ?
Or a spouse or daughter based on what’s posted above! Do you have any recommendations to go with your comment? ?
Reminder – no need to respond to a thread to criticize. If you think someone is going against Guidelines, please report it. Thank you!
Angelika Stout I don’t think it was you, especially given the timeline of the posts.
My dad was a merchant mariner and sailor. He loved C.S. Forester’s books (Hornblower).
Thanks for posting. I am always looking for authors for my husband. I sometimes like the books he likes, he often would not like my books. I plan to save this thread.
