I have fond memories of so many books on this classic list. The classics are timeless pieces of work that follow your through your entire life. Given enough time I’d love to reread every book on this list.

    Couldn't resist reviewing the Narnia Chronicles. Here is the link to the review
    There's so much here I might write another review

    Oh wow... the memories. I read majority of these books in school. I read a Tale of Two Cities twice [once in middle school and again in high school]. I even saw the Wishbone version of the story. Of the listed Catcher in the Rye became apart of a to read list item because of an anime I saw that featured the book which was used as a focal point in a case that had more twists in it than a bag of pretzels. Of Mice and Men probably would have never gotten read if I didn't have to retake English 2; its okay I was able to take both English 2 and 3 at the same time. Of the books, Lord of the Flies was just one of those books... even seeing the movie adaption didn't help subdue the contents. Awesome listing by the way.

    I reviewed Frankenstein but I used the Amazon link to the edition of the book I actually am reading right now. http://www.squidoo.com/have-you-read-frankenstein

    Hello, some of these books are fantastic, but I wrote a lens about a book that influenced me during my adolescence, "The Little Prince" by Saint Exupery. Here is my sharing another book although not any of these ...

    I read The Little Prince ages ago. There is a lovely cartoon version of the story. Did you find that for your review?

    There is? All I saw was a live action movie.

    Great selection of books. My kids have had to read so many of these for required high school reading, probably 85% - good school, good kids.

    I've read most of these stories. I tried to read Ayn Rand but found it a bit difficult (don't ask, even I don't know). Catcher in the Rye didn't become an interest till after I saw a movie highlighting it. I just might take a look into this.

  • jponiato Dec 10, 2013 @ 1:48 pm
    I've read about half of these, and many of the others are on my 'to read' list (like "Atlas Shrugged"). Great list.

    This morning I just finished reading this on the Kindle :)
  • Cercis Dec 10, 2013 @ 12:25 pm
    Don't know where to start...so many of these fall in the "favorite" category.
