I don’t claim to be a massive reader of the classics, but I have over the years read many that I have loved. I love Jane Austen, I adore George Elliott. But I also consider books such as The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy as classics!
I wonder what books from the current cohort of writers will go on to be considered as classics, or if this title has been replaced by the modern phrase ‘must read”?
Here is part two of my favourite reads.
1 Lark Rise To Candleford by Flora Thompson
2 Hard Times by Charles Dickens
3 Middlemarch by George Elliott
4 The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
5 The Lord of The Flies by William Golding
6 Animal Farm by George Orwell
7 1994 by George Orwell
8 Robinson and Crusoe by Daniel Defoe
9 Great Expectation by Charles Dickens
10 The Lion The Witch And The Wardrobe by C S Lewis
