The Worm Ouroboros

by E.R. Eddison

This book is really different to most fantasy books, the style is extremely - and I mean extremely - hard work. I got about a third of the way through it before abandoning it because I just got a bit sick of the style, not the story though. It might appeal to you though if you can take the saga style of writing, it's certainly very different and has some good scenes from what I read.

The War of the Worlds

by H.G. Wells

One of my favourite books, it tells a completely convincing story of alien invasion and the plight of humans caught up in it. I don't think I've ever read a science fiction book that has caught my imagination quite like this one, it's a masterpiece of storytelling that you're sure to love.

Wuthering Heights

by Emily Brontė

This is a great read, the story is absorbing and the setting and characters so vivid you'll feel like you were there and you knew them. I don't think you can really give a book more praise!

Oliver Twist

by Charles Dickens

I loved this book, I found myself rereading paragraphs just because I wanted to savour the flavour of it a second time. You can see why Dickens writing sparked an outpouring of guilt from the middle classes after they were published, the picture of grinding poverty it gives you is too realistic to be anything other than rooted in cold unpleasant fact. I was gripped by this one till the last page and sad to finish it.
