book suggestion needed

Ant made a New Year's resolution that he would read twelve books this year. He has been steadfastly sticking to this plan, and takes a book to work every day to read over lunch or on the tube when he's not cycling. He started with Bloodletting and Other Miraculous Cures by Vincent Lam in January and since then he's read the Bourne Triology by Robert Ludlum(The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremecy, The Bourne Ultimatum) and a hilarious book called Falling Sideways by Tom Holt (he was laughing out loud while we were flying last weekend). This week he started The Spy Who Came in from the Cold by John LeCarre that I picked out for him. I'm going to read it when he's done.

He doesn't know what to do next. He asked me to write this post to ask you for suggestions. He likes to read well known authors and he needs a book that will keep him riveted from the beginning. He doesn't mind if it's a large book (the last Bourne book was 700+ pages!). Any help would be very welcomed!

One of my favourite series is the His Dark Materials trilogy by Phillip Pullman. They are probably classed as "children's books" but they are absolutely riveting and have some pretty complex ideas and themes in them. I absolutely loved them and I recommend them to everyone. The first book is called "The Northern Lights", the second is "The Subtle Knife" and the third one is "The Amber Spyglass". Simply fantastic!
