The Lord of the Rings (3 Book Box set)
2.  The Lord of the Rings (3 Book Box set) by J. R. R. Tolkien

Gentlemen & Players
3.  Gentlemen & Players by Joanne Harris
The list author says:
  "Less well known than Chocolat, but a much more gripping and addictive story. The twists and turns of the story are a genuine surprise."
£6.39   Used & New from: £0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (141 customer reviews)

No Highway
4.  No Highway by Nevil Shute
The list author says:
  "Another Shute novel. Less famous than On the Beach and several of his other books, but the characters are typical of his sense of honour and old-fashioned deeds of everday heroism."
£6.99   Used & New from: £0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (48 customer reviews)

The Dog Stars
5.  The Dog Stars by Peter Heller
The list author says:
  "Absolutely without doubt the best book I've read in years. An apocalyptic story with both hope and pathos. The writing style may not be for everyone, but give it a try and after a few pages it really sucks you in."
Used & New from: £0.01
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (125 customer reviews)

Mariana
6.  Mariana by Susanna Kearsley
The list author says:
  "An unashamedly romantic choice, but truly a great book. I am really fond of Kearsley's writing style, and the blend of history and romance in this book is perfect."
£6.39   Used & New from: £0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (92 customer reviews)

Persuasion (Penguin Classics)
7.  Persuasion (Penguin Classics) by Jane Austen
The list author says:
  "One of the few 'classic' novels that really is still relevant and enjoyable. I think I like Persuasion more even than Pride and Prejudice."
£4.99   Used & New from: £0.01
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (136 customer reviews)

The Silver Sword
8.  The Silver Sword by Ian Serraillier
The list author says:
  "Underappreciated. This is a book so few people seem to have heard of, yet in my opinion it is probably the best children's story ever written. Moving, memorable and full of hope."
£5.24   Used & New from: £0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (100 customer reviews)
