Madame Bovary

by Gustave Flaubert

Absolutely classic. Although tragedy, but this book is absolute classic. It is not about adultery (as people think it is), rather it is about aspirations and desires of Madame Bovary. She is commits adultery not because she is characterless (she did not sleep for money in the end), but rather she thought it would fulfil her aspirations.

Read some translation which is close to original (like wordsworth editions) because Flaubert plays with words.

Fabulous.

Wuthering Heights

by Emily Brontë

Pathetic.

I did not at all like. The author was determined to make every single thing in the novel a tragedy. She kills almost every character present in starting. And, there is no love or love story. Very rough and cruel. And most importantly tough of literature is not there.

Zero Stars.

The Scarlet Letter

by Nathaniel Hawthorne

A worth read book.I liked it.

This is a book which would clearly strike at your conscience. It is a book for those people who want to think about society, its rituals, human emotions, and conscience.

The language is so beautiful, and story is also up to the mark.

It is similar to "Crime and Punishment" in its conclusions, but in my view it is even better.

If you don't mind to stress your mind a little bit to think, then it is a standard recommendation.

The Call of the Wild

by Jack London

Well, I love classics ... but this one was utterly boring ..... the starting was good ... but then it became utterly mechanical ..... it lacked emotions ...... sorry but I did not like it
