The "Dexter" series by Jeff Lindsay is also good for this type of reader. Yes, Dexter Morgan is a serial killer, but he is not like other serial killers: he only kills bad people who have hurt others.
Because it is about a serial killer, there is a lot of violence and death. However, those who are haunted by a weak stomach should have no fear. The books are not nearly as bloody as they could be.
If you are a little timid around blood, though, you should probably avoid watching the TV interpretation of these books. The show on Showtime is a visually stunning, superb work, from the casting to the gore to the relationships of the characters.
If your friend already watches the show, then he or she will not be disappointed by the books. There are six so far -- more Dexter than you could ever ask for.
But if you have a friend who has neither read the books nor watched the show, buy the books first. Then, you could get the first season of the show as a follow-up gift.
The final genre is romance. One book in particular comes to mind:"The Book of Flying" by Keith Miller.
It is about a young librarian who dreams of living in the city of winged people with a girl he fell in love with. He could not be with her because he did not have wings, so he sets out to get some. The adventures the librarian goes through are extraordinary, and the book is so detailed that readers will feel like they are traveling alongside him.
Another good choice is"Angel of Mercy" by Lurlene McDaniel. It is about a young girl who leaves home to travel on a ship to Africa. On the journey, she meets a young boy who shares her passion for helping others. This is a quintessential romance novel for people of any age.
The best way to find a good book for a friend, family member or co-worker is to find a book that has a character or characters that match his or her personality. It might be easier for a person to connect to a book if there is someone he or she can connect to.
Or better yet, ask the person what kind of books he or she likes. Does he have a favorite author? What is her favorite novel?
In the long run, books are some of the hardest presents to buy if you don't know exactly what you are looking for because there are literally millions of choices. There are tons of genres out there, from crime and adventure to horror and sci-fi to romance and so much more. You need to explore them to find a good book to give as a present, so you should start looking now.
Oh, and keep the receipt in case you misfire.
