5 Classics I read in 2015

To know what an ultimate pleasure sometimes a book written at least a hundred years before, or more, is known only to those who read them. There is a reason why these books are still surviving, generations after generations. Thus, here are five classics book that I read this year and I think are worth taking a look again.

Middlemarch is George Eliot’s magnum opus. The 800 page novel, it took me almost 9 days to finish reading it. Eliot’s writing is witty and sublime. This book examines multiple themes such as the role of education in the lives of characters and how it affects them. And as Virginia Woolf said, “The magnificent book that, with all its imperfections, is one of the few English novels written for grown-up people.”

My Rating: 4 out of 5

Macbeth by William Shakespeare is an intriguing tale.

My Rating 4 out of 5

The semiautobiographical Martin Eden is the most vital and original character Jack London ever created. Set in San Francisco, this is the story of Martin Eden, an impoverished seaman who pursues, obsessively and aggressively, dreams of education and literary fame.

My Rating 4 out of 5

This short book will make you feel things in mere words. Of Mice and Men is a rare American novel.

 My Rating 4 out of 5

You can go on reading books after books for fifteen days or you can read Tolstoy’s undoubtedly masterpiece: War and Peace.
