Flowers For Algernon (S.F. MASTERWORKS)
1.  Flowers For Algernon (S.F. MASTERWORKS) by Daniel Keyes

The Great Gatsby (Penguin Popular Classics)
3.  The Great Gatsby (Penguin Popular Classics) by F Scott Fitzgerald

The Road
4.  The Road by Cormac McCarthy
The list author says:
  "Bleak and cold as hell.  The love of the man for his son burns so brightly you hope against hope for a happy ending. What it is to be human. Best book I've read for years."

The Realm of Numbers
7.  The Realm of Numbers by Isaac Asimov

Don Quixote (Wordsworth Classics)
8.  Don Quixote (Wordsworth Classics) by Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium Trilogy Book 1)
