When I read, I prefer the genre of thrillers, filled with action and suspense. Still, I try to read a variety of books, and one of the genres I get to less often is that of classical literature. For me, some of the books can be pretty boring, but there are still a few novels I cherish when it comes to this genre. Here’s a list of those books, all of which I recommend reading for fun.
- 1984 – George Orwell
- Animal Farm – George Orwell
- Any and all Sherlock Holmes – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
- Around the World in 80 Days – Jules Verne
- Robinson Crusoe – Daniel Defoe
- Lord of the Flies – William Golding
- To Kill a Mockingbird – Harper Lee
I like these books because they offer deep, meaningful insights into society and life. They may not be the most interesting books I’ve read, but they certainly have some of the most complex messages embedded in them. I still need to try some books by Steinbeck, Hemingway and Oscar Wilde. If you’re looking for a good read with a deeper meaning, I really recommend any of these books; they’re best enjoyed when you read it for the fun, not for a class!
