Good Book's Which I Have Read as the Result of the 'Big Read

Ms. J. H. Munro
 
Birdsong (Vintage War)
Birdsong (Vintage War)
"I had heard of this book, of course, and set out to read it with a heavy heart.  I expected to be depressed and bored.  Instead I was transfixed.  A most beautiful and fascinating novel."
Catch-22
Catch-22
"This is supposed to be a torrent of masculinity, most appealing to middle-aged men.  However, I found it funny and meaningful, although I am a teenage girl."
Brave New World (Flamingo modern classics)

"I found this book far superior to the more sucessful 1984.  The totalitarian regime is more fantastic, but at the same time more believable, to give a compelling book."
Rebecca (VMC)

"I stayed up until one o'clock in the morning to finish reading this book.  I felt a great need to know what happened, though I did not feel enlightened by the book until about 2 weeks afterward. Great"
Katherine (Coronet Books)

"When I got this book out of the library, it looked dusty and unappealing. When my grandmother saw it and said she loved Anya Seton novels, I nearly gave up. I persevered, however, and it was wonderful"
Cold Comfort Farm (Penguin Modern Classics)

"I haven't laughed so much in all my life."
The Great Gatsby (Penguin Modern Classics)
The Great Gatsby (Penguin Modern Classics)
"A great, dark American novel.  If you are unsure about liking it, it is only short, and a masterpiece."
The Grapes of Wrath
The Grapes of Wrath
"A heart-wrenching and gripping tale of America during the depression  I cannot claim to have 'enjoyed' a book with such a subject matter, but it is most certainly a great book."
Persuasion

"I had read several other of Austen's works, but I had never got around to reading this.  Not as good as 'Emma' but entertaining all the same"
I Capture The Castle
I Capture The Castle
"A very imaginative book, though it does drag a little towards the end.  Another book which I felt let down by at first, but love now."
