The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

by Mark Twain

Anything by Mark Twain is good. I am a New Zealander, but I can appreciate the down to earth Back Home US of A merit of this book. If you can, before you read it, try to see the really old film that was made with this title. Victore Jure(?) portrait of Tom's nemisis was so very good, and Aunt Polly was wonderfull too.

The Arabian Nights Entertainments

by Anonymous

A really worthwhile voyage into Arab and mid Eastern culture, full of mystery, humour and SEX.

Ayesha

by H. Rider Haggard

I have real trouble with Victorian prose, I find it very hard to read with it's often flowery descriptive style. It's worth the trouble with this one though, first saw it as a silent movie back in 1938, and it realy grabbed me. I can still se the great block of ice with a mammoth inside, and the standard lovely maiden all ready to be CCRRUUSSHHEEDD at it's feet.
