The Queen of Spades

by Aleksandr Sergeevich Pushkin

A game of cards and secret knowledge of how to win.

The Machine Stops

by E.M. Forster

As the previous reviewers have said, it's a spooky story which is very relevant and very true today. It's hard to comprehend that it was written so long ago, before the internet and social media of today. I really enjoyed it. While there were similarieties to Anthem (Ayn Rand), I found it more realistic even in its strangeness. What would we do if the internet went down, how would we survive now we have become so dependant upon it? Highly recommended!!

The Outlaws

by Selma Lagerlöf

A short but very moving story which carries you into a dream-like world where the nature is alive and haunting. Her rich imagery is vivid and the question of what is right and wrong is brought up and left open through these two outlaws. A thought-provoking tale

The Flood

by Emile Zola

When I read this, I wasn't prepared for the sheer force of it. The absolute power of nature against which we are powerless. Wonderfully written, the symbolism rich and beautiful even in its devastation.
