Classics Revisited
submitted Oct 2011 by BookMan

Although I enjoy a lot of contemporary literature, there are some literary friends I always enjoy reconnecting with!

The Hobbit The Hobbit
by J.R.R. Tolkien

The Lord of the Rings The Lord of the Rings trilogy
by J.R.R. Tolkien

I try to re-read this trilogy (and The Hobbit), once avery decade!

The Old Man and the Sea The Old Man and the Sea
by Ernest Hemingway

Among a series of powerful novels, this is the one that had the most impact on me.

Slaughterhouse Five Slaughterhouse Five
by Kurt Vonnegut

The War of the Worlds The War of the Worlds
by H.G. Wells

Try to purge that horrible Tom Cruise from your memory and enjoy Wells' exciting story.

A Study in Scarlet A Study in Scarlet
by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
by Mark Twain (a.k.a. Samuel Clemens)

Jazz Age Stories Jazz Age Stories
by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Although he's best remembered for his novels, I prefer Fitzgerald's short stories!

A Princess of Mars A Princess of Mars
by Edgar Rice Burroughs

There's a new movie version of this story coming out soon -- read the original novel first!

Dune Dune
by Frank Herbert

Although the Dune franchise has become a bit unwieldy, with all the sequels and prequels, the original novel is still incredible!

A Lost Lady A Lost Lady
by Willa Cather

The Godwulf Manuscript The Godwulf Manuscript
by Robert B. Parker

The first Spenser book, and still one of the best!

The Bourne Identity The Bourne Identity
by Robert Ludlum

Ignore the recent, divergent feature films and read the original -- it's fantastic!

Treasure Island Treasure Island
by Robert Louis Stevenson
