3.  The Thorn Birds (Penguin ELT Simplified Readers: Level 6: Advanced: 3000 Headwords) by Colleen McCullough

August & Everything After
7.  August & Everything After by Counting Crows

Lolita
8.  Lolita by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov
The list author says:
  "Lolita does not deserve its reputation as a dirty book, nor as an insight into the mind of the paedophile.  Beautifully sad in places, a little disturbing in others, this is writing at its best."

Classic Love
9.  Classic Love by Various Composers
The list author says:

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (100 customer reviews)

Hannibal
11.  Hannibal by Hans Zimmer
The list author says:
  "The book is very good.  This made the film almost equally so.  Music and Poetry mingle to make this CD worth listening to at any time, each track is a piece in its own right."
£6.37   Used & New from: £0.24
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (20 customer reviews)
