Must Read Classics

Classic novels can be some of the most powerful works of fiction that you will come across. These books are heralded as the best of the best for a reason. To Kill a Mockingbird is a novel that is taught in schools for a reason. And we have seen the importance of novels such as 1984 and The Handmaid’s Tale.

But not every novel has to be a powerful novel to be a classic. For example, a novel like The Count of Monte Cristo is an epic adventure story that is hard to put down once you start reading it. Books like Jane Eyre and The Catcher in the Rye are popular decades later because they are fun novels that make us think and enjoy great writing.

    I’ve read most of these. Just wondering if you have separate category for Dickens, because, you know – such a keen observer of the Victorian era human condition.

      These are great lists but really, why should I have read these particular books. I actually have read 7 of these but have no clue why I should read the other three – you’re just giving me a name without reason. Please do better.

      Absolutely, Dickens should have at least one of these spots! Tale of Two Cities is my favorite, but everyone should read the original A Christmas Carol.
