Best 19th Century Novels
Book Hawk "Book Hawk"
The Red and the Black (Penguin Classics)
"The greatest novel ever written (according to Tolstoy)"
Anna Karenina (Wordsworth Classics)
"Way too long but contains everything life has to show us"
The Idiot (Wordsworth Classics)
"Prince Myshkin has to be one of the most life-affirming characters in fiction"
Old Goriot (Pocket Penguin Classics)

Sentimental Education (Penguin Classics)
"A portrait of a man and an epoch (Paris in the 1840s)"
Pride and Prejudice (Penguin Popular Classics)
"No one ever wrote with more wit aside from Stendhal"
Wuthering Heights (Penguin Popular Classics)

"Maybe the greatest fable ever written. And only 18 years old..."
Tess of the D'urbervilles (Penguin Popular Classics)
"Will quite probably make you cry"
Vanity Fair (Penguin Popular Classics)
