Great Expectations

by Charles Dickens

This is my first Dickens book and I thought the story was excellent. I thought it was dull at first but things start happening when Pip meets Miss Havisham and Estella and it gets exciting when Pip goes to London the mystery of the identity of his benefactor continues. Pip's transformation from a country boy to a gentleman then to a simple hardworking man (his head inflates a bit in London) is really the focus of this story.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

by Arthur Conan Doyle

Each of Holme's cases (at least those that we know of) are always interesting. It's not action-packed, there are not that many chases through the streets of London and though Mr. Holmes packs a mean punch, he hardly resorts to violence. What makes this great is Holmes' genius combined with loyal Dr. Watson.

by Jane Austen

Emma was my introduction to the world of Jane Austen and I felt most welcome. Emma is the story of Emma Woodhouse, a self-satisfied girl who has it all, and her mischiefs in matchmaking. I thought it was very silly at first that this entire book is all about who ends up with whom but Jane Austen does more than that, in fact Jane Austen is a lot more than that. There are also some characters here you'll probably relate to someone you know, talkative Ms Bates, silly Harriet Smith, pretentious Mrs Elton, prim and proper Jane Fairfax, etc.

Pride and Prejudice

by Jane Austen

Any girl (and maybe some guys) who watch movies like She's All That, 10 Things I Hate About You, The Prince and Me, You've Got Mail, in short every chick-flick there is, would instantly like this book. This is probably the original chick-flick that inspired our modern films. After Pride and Prejudice, I'm convinced I should read all of Jane Austen's novels.
