Little Women

by Louisa May Alcott

Lovely novel and a fine sample of Alcott's writing. However, for those who have read all her works, there is a certain repetitive element that is encountered in her writings.
But, Little Women is a special book, especially the second half, "Good Wives". I've always been moved by Beth's death and Jo's resulting loneliness. Amy and Meg, though not as likeable, are much more realistically drawn.

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

by Jules Verne

Classic book and classic sci-fi. Most of its premises now seem a little ridiculous but Verne's writing compensates for that. Along with his great contemporary, Wells, they were the pioneers of early science fiction.

Through the Looking Glass

by Lewis Carroll

Outstanding book. Has been labelled by many as a children's classic but I wouldn't agree. This is even darker than Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and it has a much more richer and twisted assortment of characters. Carroll is at his finest here in his renditions of Jabberwocky. Easily would make it to the top 10 books I've read along with Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

by Lewis Carroll

Alice's Adventures In Wonderland is crazy, scary, weird and totally fascinating. Under the guise of a children's tale, it presents deep conundrums, witty satire and profound insights. An amazing book!
