My husband is looking for a "mind-blowing" SF book for Kindle. When asked to elaborate, he said something similar to the feeling he experienced when reading Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy for the first time. Other books that were mentioned were Neil Gaiman's American Gods and Iain Banks' Transition. Any suggestions?
Moonheart by Charles De Lint (more on the fantasy end) The DARK IS RISING SEQUENCE of Susan Cooper (the first in the series is adolescent, the rest leap to "lovely", especially THE GREY KING) NEVERWHERE and the sublime THE SANDMAN SERIES of Neil Gaiman (the Shakespeare of graphic novels--not for Kindle) SNOW CRASH (sci fi) and CRYPTONOMICON (not sci/fi, but a great "guy book") by N. Stephenson
