As an avid reader, I often love to make book recommendations to others. Here is a glimpse at three of my favorite classics, which are sure to not disappoint anyone wanting to find a source of entertainment. Enjoy!
PRIDE AND PREJUDICE
by Jane Austen
Austen’s Pride and Prejudice has enchanted readers for nearly two centuries. Arguably her best work, it is no wonder Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzpatrick Darcy have captivated generations. The witty lines mocking the upper classes to the discussions of virtues like vanity, pride, and familial love is the icing on a cake baked from scandal, love, family, and “willful misjudgements.”
THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO
by Alexandre Dumas
Dumas’ masterpiece follows the formation of the character of Edmund Dantes. After being imprisoned and losing all he holds dear, he learns the art of revenge. Once he regains his freedom after a daring escape, he builds a life under the title “The Count of Monte Cristo.” He applies what he learned about vengeance to manipulating the downfall of his enemies.
by Emily Bronte
Although many say Jane Eyre is the greatest book to be produced by the Bronte Sisters, Wuthering Heights is favored by several readers. That includes me. Emily Bronte’s novel, and the only novel she produced in her lifetime, is a love story that reaches beyond the grave. Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff are the tragic characters that harken turmoil in the lives of all they encounter. Yet, the most interesting aspect of the novel is Heathcliff’s transformation from a pitiful Gypsy orphan to a pitiful villain with a damned soul.
