My all time top 25 favourite Novels.
The Lord of The Rings (Based on the 50th Anniversary Single volume edition 2004)
"The greatest novel ever written, (now a major motion picture!)"
Howards End (Penguin Modern Classics)
"Leonard Bast is a brilliant, I got lost in this book. Greatest novel of one of the greatest English writers."
Captain Corelli's Mandolin
"Forget the crap film, this book is stunning, gripping and beautifully written."
The Complete Sherlock Holmes
"Never fails to amaze with inventiveness and startling conclusions. My favourite literary hero."
Foundation: 1/3 (The Foundation Series)
"Everyone a work of genius, gave me an early love of sci-fi, a truly unique theory in Psychohistory and the brilliant Harry Seldon.."
Middlemarch (Penguin Classics)
"Eliot never wrote a novel that was anything less than a work of genius."
Crime and Punishment (Oxford World's Classics)
"A brilliant psychological study set in the dark slums of working class St.Petersburg"
Les Miserables (Classics)
"They just don't write em like they used too. The greatest characters I've ever seen in literature."
The Count of Monte Cristo (Wordsworth Classics)
"Possibly the greatest plot ever devised."
The Famished Road
"Beautifully written, surreal and stunning, a deserved booker prize winner."
Anna Karenina (Wordsworth Classics)
"A long slog, but well worth it, beats trying to attempt War and Peace."
The Woman in White (Penguin Classics)
"One of the original dectective novels, still one of the best. Kept me up all night, Count Fosco is an ingenious creation."
Far from the Madding Crowd (Penguin Popular Classics)
"Poor Hardy gets a hard time. Underappreciated, dark, risque, ahead of his time, one of my favourite writers."
George Orwell Omnibus: The Complete Novels: Animal Farm, Burmese Days, A Clergyman's Daughter, Coming up for Air, Keep the Aspidistra Flying, and, 1984 Nineteen Eighty-Four
"Never a dull word, one of the greatest visionaries in literature."
The Sound And The Fury (Vintage Classics)
"You'll be confused, disturbed and treated to the writing of one of the US's greatest writers."
The Secret History
"The most amazing debut I've ever read, murder most academic."
The Big Sleep: A Philip Marlowe Mystery (Penguin Fiction)
"Phillip Marlowe was one of the original tough, hard drinking PIs, still one of the best."
Goodbye To Berlin
"Brilliantly sketched characters in pre-war Nazi Germany, Isherwood's best."
Birdsong (Vintage War)
"The most harrowing, realistic WW1 story I've ever read. Brilliantly captures one of the darkest scars in European history"
"One of the first I read, he made me a fan for life. The true master of suspense."
Possession: A Romance
"Brilliant! I could put any Byatt book here but this is a masterpiece.."
"Great characters, great plot and an amazing twist. A great thriller from a superbly talented writer."
Wuthering Heights (Collector's Library)
"The least prolific of all the Brontes but definitely the best novel of the lot. Dark and brilliant."
The Maltese Falcon (CRIME MASTERWORKS)
"One of the best PI novels ever, situations that will never be recreated. A master storyteller."
Le Grand Meaulnes (Penguin Modern Classics)
"The only novel from a young writer killed on the Somme during WW1. A touching, nostalgic, brilliant story that takes a long time to forget."
