by Mark Twain
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is one of those books that is engaging to read because of its light-hearted tone and humorous elements. It is also a great adventure story and, in contrast to other books of the time, featured a protagonist who wasn’t afraid to break the rules or get into trouble. As the book was first published in 1876, it does feature a few dated elements, but the story remains as gripping as it was all those years ago.
by William Andrew Johnston
The Apartment Next Door was published in 1919, but that doesn’t make this spy story any less gripping. The protagonist is a girl named Jane who is recruited by the secret service during WWI to keep an eye on the inhabitants of her next door apartment. With elements of mystery, romance, intrigue, and of course plenty of action, The Apartment Next Door is a real page turner.
by H.G. Wells
Just about any science-fiction book dealing with time travel probably owes a debt to this 1895 effort by H.G. Wells. It was one of the first books to really popularize the whole idea of traveling through time using some type of machine, which is a concept borrowed by most books in the genre ever since. The Time Machine centers around the adventures of a Victorian inventor who recounts his remarkable tale of visiting the future. The vivid and imaginative descriptions in this book make it a timeless classic that is highly regarded by all fans of the genre.
by H.P. Lovecraft
American author, Howard Phillips Lovecraft, is widely regarded as one of the most significant horror fiction writers of the 20th-century. His Cthulhu Mythos continues to be an influence on the genre to this day and At The Mountain of Madness is the perfect introduction. It chronicles the events of an Antarctic expedition that ends in disaster when explorers discover otherworldly beings.
by Agatha Christie
There is a good reason that Agatha Christie is one of the best-selling novelist of all time and why her detective novels continue to enthrall new readers. The Secret Adversary is only the second detective fiction novel published by her and a good example of her literary skills. It is the tale of two young adventurers for hire and, unlike many other books in the genre, manages to keep readers guessing about the identity of the villain right to the end.
