The Coral Island

by R.M. Ballantyne

One of my favourite books when in school. I read it many times after that. Now I own a copy and still reading it. The book is sure to bring in a spirit of adventure in young people.

The Mysterious Island

by Jules Verne

Henry Ratliff's excellent review is more interesting than the book.

Overdue

by Harry Collingwood

Splendid. This is a real movie stuff written over a hundred years ago. May be Prates of the Caribbeans has been inspired by Collingwood's pirate tales. The story is so engrossing that I completed in one stretch. This thriller is about a 17 year old boy (the book is not classified for young readers only) who is assigned to captain a ship all by himself. I recommend this wonderful book for its descriptions, geographical knowledge and sail-ship technicalities. You will love it.

Ethics

by Aristotle

A nation is guarded against anarchy by people obeying its constitutional principles, Federal laws and Penal codes. In all civilized nations this has been the case. Similarly for an orderly society we need social tenets to keep things under control. That is where moral codes come in to picture. Unfortunately morality and religion have been thrown to the winds. This book revives these thought process.
