I am 13 and on my own, of my choice, have read 2 books. Im looking to find a book to read. I would like a book that is like a mystery that gets you thinking, its not like a scary haunting mystery, but, well crap I cant explain it but I hope you guys get what I mean.

Peace

If you can get hold of it, Michael Sweeney's Method by Sean Condon was a great book for me, I am also a 13 year old pit go-er who has been forced to read


"Michael Sweeney and his friend Dud are just two of the many invisible nothings at their expensive school. They come from deep in the suburbs and they're not cool or tough or even that brainy. So they're pretty much left alone, until they make friends with the new American guy. And before long, Michael Sweeney is somebody. But that's just the beginning of his troubles. . ."

Mightn't sound interesting but I recommended it to all my friends, they also enjoyed it

I'm pretty sure that I read The Brothers Karamazov when I was thirteen. Or I might have just turned 14. It was a really good book... not sure if you'd be into it, though.

Twilight.

lol. But really, read "Double Exposure" by Brian Caswell. It has a twist at the end that makes you go back and read it all again. And it makes you think as well. Plus it's pretty short.

Also, Watership Down is good, and makes you reflect, even though it's about rabbits.

Full Tilt by Neal Shusterman. I don't know if it's what you're looking for, but I remember loving it when I was about your age. It's not a mystery, but it will certainly get you thinking.

Tom Morello: Yes. Libertyville…represent.

A Clockwork Orange. But if your parents are die-hard Christians, they might dislike it.

Read anything by Stephen King (The Stand and It especially)
OR
1984, Brave New World, or anything by Fyodor Dostoevsky.


All good choices...1984 is one of my favorite novels of all time.

Some others you might like that have some mystery are Lord Of The Flies and The Scarlet Pimpernel (though it is nowhere near as dark as some of these). Though they are not primarily mystery novels...

I'm more into the fantasy/sci-fi genre anyway...Terry Brooks is god.

'American Gods' by Neil Gaiman is great. Clive Barker's 'Weaveworld' and the Abarat series are fantastic as well.

Harry Potter. Seriously.

Shit guys, he's only 13 and only read 2 books. Give him simple and catching books. Don't give him the damn Clockworks Orange or 1984 although they are awesome.

I agree with American Gods. Anything by Gaiman really. Where else are you going to find a woman consuming an entire man into her vaj during intercouse?

Graphic Novel, but V for Vendetta is a must read. I've wanted to get into Lovecraft. Going to pick up The Call of Cthulhu today, any other recommendations?

1984 is a fantastic book.

I read it when I was 13/14.

Animal Farm is also brilliant, anything by George Orwell will get you thinking.
Cette nuit j'ai rêvé que je mâchais ses yeux
Après avoir crevé par accès de furie
Ta replète panse d'helminthes blancs nourrie,
Trop prompte à déféquer le fruit d'un vit sanieux.

1984, definitely...
You might like to try some Neil Gaiman, I read his stuff first when I was 13, and he's one of my favourite authors.
