DH wants some new books for Christmas so need some recommendations. He’s currently reading (and loving) The Martian so I thought I’d buy Artemis but the reviews aren’t that good. Other books he’s enjoyed are:

Shardlake series/ Dominion
His dark materials / book of dust
The stand / 11.23.63
I am pilgrim
The dry / force of nature
Rivers of London series
Fatherland / the ghost / conclave

He definitely prefers plot driven to character driven books. Any suggestions?

I'd suggest the Fractured Europe series by Dave Hutchinson - the first one is Europe in Autumn. SFF thrillers set in a near-future Europe, very fast moving & plotty.

Also Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky (alien spiders!) and Dogs of War by the same author (AI/canine gene spliced soldiers).

An Officer and a Spy ~ Robert Harris

Justin Cronin's the passage.

An Officer and a Spy is a good call but we already have it - I've read it but DH hasn't. Off to investigate the others.

If he likes the Shardlake books he might like SJ Parris's Giordana Bruno series
