Radka | 1 comments Dedinitely Pride and Prejudice, sir Arthur´s (Conan Doyle, but I consider him a close friend) Sherlock Holmes stories, I loved Frankenstein by Mary Shelley and The Picture of Dorian Gray (Oscar Wilde). I´ve recently bought Dracula but haven´t read it yet. And I´ve definitely forgotten some.

Thomas Wilson (StorytellerTDW) | 1 comments My favorite Classical Literature Pieces are

1. King James Version of the Bible - It literally has everything all in one book - good and bad.
2. Sun Tzu's The Art of War
3. And many other more normally considered Classics

I see lots of people have put Pride and Prejudice and I have not read that one yet, I probably need to add it to my to read list.

message 28: by Danielle (new)

Danielle (ramblingbooks) I haven't read many classical lit books because I have just now been getting into them, but so far I love Jane Austen. I absolutely adored Sense & Sensiibility and Northanger Abbey. I'm currently reading Pride & Prejudice. There is a long list of others I'd like to read too. Especially the Bronte's works. :)


message 29: by Bětka (new)

Bětka Hard to say what's classical... Well... I definitely love Master and Margarita, it's maybe the best book I've ever read. I love Franz Kafka, too... And Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's Le Petit Prince. And my favourite Russian author is Anton Pavlovich Checkov and his Seagull...


message 30: by Jacob (new)

Jacob Purhard (bodiebroadus) | 1 comments So far, my all time favorite classic is Moby Dick aka The White While, and also The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn. This is somewhat strange due to the fact that the authors of these two books have styles that are as contradictory as possible. But I believe that I can foretell the future and honestly say that War And Peace will make a trinity out of my favorite classic books. I'm currently reading the Tolstoy's masterpiece and it's an unbelievable experience for me.


message 31: by Michael (new)

Michael Jecks (michaeljecks) | 2 comments Any of the Sherlock Holmes stories, but also books like Tom Jones, The Count of Monte Cristo, and pretty much anything by Jane Austen for the elegance of the writing and the perfect observation of her victims!
