Any sci-fi book recommendations for my brother?

So my brother wants to read a book. He hasn't read a book in years, and even then it was for school. He's 18 years old and would appreciate a short sci-fi story. Any recs?

  • "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" for humorous sci-fi. Hugh Howey's "Wool" for something far more serious.
    Sorry, the list of "short" sci-fi novels is just that... short.

  • Sometimes those, "What Next?", books are pretty good. They capture interest because you feel you're in an adventure yourself and it's your decision to where the outcome goes.

    It's not short, but Ender's Game is a good book I've heard.

  • Sleepers, Wake... That was a nice good book.. It would be nice if they made a movie out of it, but I doubt any writers, or directors are interested.. LOL..

  • Fahrenheit. A little dated but the only short sci fi book I know of and it's a classic novel
