Virge's favourite reads 2
Mrs. Virginia Chattaway "virge21"
The Crimson Petal And The White
"Hugely detailed, wonderfully descriptive and lengthy novel set in the shadowy and tragic world of Victorian prostitution"
The Master and Margarita (Penguin Modern Classics)
"Fantastical and surreal, the devil and his minions roll up in Soviet era Moscow and reap havoc"
The Edwardians (VMC)
"An enjoyable, eminently readable tale of the English Upper Classes"
A Suitable Boy
"Epic family saga set in post independence India"
"Unnerving thriller/horror in which the affuent inhabitants of a high class apartment building descend into anarchy"
Someone Like You
"Dahl's short stories for adults are perfectly crafted and satisfyingly twisted"
My Little Blue Dress: A Memoir
"The first half is the best bit - a very funny made up old ladies 'memoir'"
No Tears: Tales from the Square Mile
"Short, sharp stories about the inner workings of London's square mile"
The Handmaid's Tale (Contemporary Classics)
"Set in a terrifying, rigidly structured future in which mankind is essentially doomed and living in fear, told from the perspective of a woman enslaved for her 'viable ovaries'"
Madame Bovary (Penguin Classics)
"Classic tragedy of a provincial French housewife who longs for escape and romance"
The Bonfire of the Vanities (Picador Books)
"Class collision in 80's New York"
The Eustace Diamonds (Oxford World's Classics)
"Difficult to pick my favourite Trollope novel - he is unputdownable!"
The Magic Toyshop (VMC)
"Rich, mythical and dark, Carter's writing is breath-taking"
Gone with the Wind
"Satisfying historical epic about the American Civil War and self-centered heroine, the wonderfully named Scarlett O'Hara"
Perfume: the Story of a Murderer (Read Red)
"Vivid, evocative novel about a perfumer in 18thC Paris, whose acute sense of smell drives him to murder in his quest to distill the perfect scent"
Dracula (Wordsworth Classics)
"How amazing it must have been to pick up this classic occult book when it was newly published, and before the countless misinterpretations which followed!"
Barrytown Trilogy: "The Commitments", "The Snapper" and "The Van"
"Laugh out loud funny, sad and poignant all at the same time. The quality of storytelling steadily improves throughout"
One Hundred Years of Solitude (Penguin Modern Classics)
"Comedy, tragedy, magical realism and political history combine in this Columbian family saga"
Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell
"Big, atmospheric 19thC fantasy about the rivalry between two English Magicians"
Alas, Poor Lady
"A large family of genteel Victorian sisters face a grim future at home unless they manage to snag a husband, the youngest eventually being forced into near penuary as a governess in her old age"
Revolutionary Road (Vintage Classics)
"A cutting insight into the breakdown of an unhappy marriage in 50's US Suburbia"
East Lynne (Oxford World's Classics)
"Ridiculous Victorian premise, told with great enthusiasm, whereby an adulterous wife, believed dead, returns as her own children's governess, and nobody realises"
"A portrait of an affluent London street on the eve of the banking crisis. The investment banker and his hideous, materialistic wife are particularly well drawn characters."
The City Of Dreaming Books (Zamonia 3)
"A fantasy adventure set in a kind of medieval, trippy Hay-on-Wye. Written before the rise of the Kindle, this is a world obsessed with the printed word, with book filled catacombs under an ancient city of second hand bookshops"
