Your selection of must-read novels - Page 4

post #46 of 59
Brave New World
post #47 of 59
+ 1 to Brave New World and Siddhartha

I think Franny and Zooey is worth mentioning; I liked it way more than Catcher in the Rye.

I'd rank 1984 above Brave New World in terms of "must read." If for no other reason than the former's imagery is so commonly invoked.

Fuck 1984.

I just finished The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen, probably a modern classic.

I'm going to invite trouble now:

Great Expectations.
Pride and Prejudice.
The Picture of Dorian Gray.
Vanity Fair.


Couple of other ones I can think of like Crime & Punishment but I never consider myself reading something until I can read the original language...

I'm actually reading Crime and Punishment now it's the Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky translation, which apparently is superb (and I'm loving it).

A Confederacy Of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole
The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides
Less Than Zero by Bret Easton Ellis
post #58 of 59
Brideshead Revisited - Evelyn Waugh (not for everyone though)
Platform - Michel Houellebecq (gauche, I know)
