Sarah I would not recommend it. I am sure some would like it, but I think Twiligh is more aimed at women??? Like I said I can only judge Twilight since I havent' been able to get into any of the others. I try but faily every time.
I guess it depends on how old your brother is and also what he likes to read. I personally LOVED Harry Potter, and read them more than once. I didn't expect to love them... I read them to see what all the hype was about, and then got two friends to do the same thing and got them hooked too. Last summer one of my best friends and I reread the entire series together just so we could read the last book with everything fresh in our minds and chat about all the things we missed reading it the first time around... seriously all summer, at our camps there we were a Harry Potter book by our side all the time.
The above post I mentioned a few series books I would recommend to younger people (teens or even pre-teens and up... I am in the up age group because I like reading these too and are huge sellers for grown ups too)
If he is grown I would suggest if he wants some spooky magic feel I would recommend THE TALISMAN by Steven King and Peter Strab, and Ghost Stories by Peter Strab... anything Peter Strab he is awesome..And THE STAND by Steven king... my second favourite novel in the world. (first being Lonesome Dove) The Interview with a Vampire series is ok. I loved Interview with the Vampire, and Tales of the Mummy Theif but then I got bored of all things Vampire. I also LOVED The Witching Hour... but hated all the books that followed. I have a love/hate relationship with the writer Anne Rice. I either love the book I am reading from her or really dislike it. There doesnt' seem any medium ground.... Interesting fact for those who are Interview with a Vampire fans....Did you know that Anne Rice wrote the Vampire Novels after the death of her dd at 5yrs old from Leukemia? It was here way of dealing with her dd dying from a blood disease... writing about Vampires and their "special" blood.
I am very very very very addicted to ebooks.. but that is an entirely different subject.
There are other knock offs of Wizard stories but they aren't hte same to me.
The more I search out ebooks the more I realize how many people are obsessed with all things MAGIC.
