Book Description

Comprehensive reference guide encompassing the history of the novel Revised update of a best-selling title Compiled by experts, academics, journalists, authors to give insightful critiques of all the writers and books that have fired imaginations all over the world Helpful for those wanting to expand their reading but don't know where to start

Synopsis

They're called the classics for good reason. Whether they're a work of wacky imagination, a piercing insight into social and cultural traditions at the time of writing, or simply a fantastically absorbing story, all the books featured in "1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die" have come about out of people's desires to communicate a story, a message or a lesson. From much loved tales to off-beat cult fiction and the timeless classics of the nineteenth century, discover the influences on the authors, plots and characters of the books that really should make up part, if not all, of your library.Battle orks with Frodo and Aragorn in "Middle Earth", go on the road with Kerouac in search of freedom, get involved with questions of gender and androgyny with Orlando, immerse yourself into the full and expansive portrait of India created by Seth in "A Suitable Boy" and enter the world of Christoper Boone in his touching and amusing quest to find the killer of his neighbour's pet dog. All of these books, and many more are reviewed with fresh perspectives in terms of plot, the ideas that they bring out and why they deserve, above others, to be recommended and read.
