I havent seen a thread for this yet, so I decided to make it!

What is your favorite classic book or books? Any recommendations for some?

My personal favorites are To Kill A Mocking Bird, Where The Red Fern Grows, Moby Dick, Black Beauty, to start on some!

So, yeah, discus below!

I've liked most of the classics I've read in high school, though we had a lot of contemporary works rather than classics so I haven't read many of the "staples" of high school english.

The ones I remember the best were Jane Eyre, The Call of the Wild, Heart of Darkness, and 1984.

When I read the topic title I thought you meant classical as in Ancient Greek and Latin, lol.

Lolita, Animal Farm, War of the Worlds, Little Women, Call of the Wild, Wuthering Heights, TKAM, The Invisible Man, Black Beauty, White Fang, 1984, Slaughterhouse Five, and more that I'm not remembering now. I'm not actually sure if all of these are considered classics but whatever

Just realized that my list is kinda long. If I had to condense into a top three: Lolita, Black Beauty, and Animal Farm. And Call of the Wild. Guess that makes it a top 4.

Voltaire's Candide is actually pretty funny (at least, in French - I'm not sure how well it translates, as I've never read it in English). And I absolutely love The Bald Soprano - just as much fun to read as it is to watch.

Where the Red Fern Grows still brings tears to my eyes whenever I read it. So much nostalgia xd.png

It would be easier for me to do favourite classical authors, I think (I'm really bad at choosing favourite books).

-Alexandre Dumas
-Wilkie Collins
-Charles Dickens
-H.G. Wells
-Daphne Du Maurier
-Margaret Atwood
-F.Scott Fitzgerald
