Our 5 Favourite Books

Books are seriously personal things. Everyone create special bonds with the characters we read about, connect with storylines and personas in various ways and appreciate all kinds of genres coming from crime to romantic relationships, old to fantasy.

These include my own personal favorites. Have a look at my picks and find out if any of these get your fancy.

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

Among the most heart-wrenching books I’ve ever read which go beyond social gaps to touch the darker aspects inside us all. Unfaithfulness, guilt as well as redemption are the most powerful themes here, with Hosseini’s 2nd, mother-daughter novel A Thousand Splendid Suns likewise highly recommended, as long as you’re prepared to let the tears keep falling down. Certainly, try and read this prior to viewing the great film.

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

The Great Gatsby is actually a romantic and skeptical novel concerning the riches and habits of the group of New Yorkers over the Jazz Age. Fitzgerald’s writing is unassailably spectacular since he portrays a harsh picture of shallow personas who maneuver themselves into complicated scenarios. His characters are well-drawn, and also the plot is appealing and fast-paced. Although this novel is perhaps best loved by college-level readers, advanced high school students will discover a lot to enjoy and talk about.

One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

One Hundred Years of Solitude reveals the story of the rise and fall, beginning and end of the fictional city of Macondo from the history of the Buendia family. Imaginative, entertaining, attractive, sad, and alive with memorable women and men- loaded with truth, compassion, as well as a musical magic which gets to the soul- this novel is really a must-read in the fictional art.

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

To Kill a Mockingbird looks at racial discrimination over the eyes of kids Jem and Scout Finch in Great Depression-era Alabama when a black guy goes on court trial for the rape of the white woman. There is a few powerful material on this Pulitzer Prize winner, first released around 1960: The drunk smashes Jem’s arm and it is murdered using a knife. The kids are stalked, and Atticus and his kids face-down a lynch mob during the evening. However, this is a true American classic and our most elegant speak for justice and tolerance. Lee precisely shows each side of this separated Southern society, and readers might be motivated to read much more about the history of times.

Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain

Readers meet up with Huckleberry Finn after he is been taken in by Widow Douglas as well as her sister, Miss Watson, who plan to educate him religion and correct etiquette. Huck shortly leads to an adventure to help out the Widow’s slave, Jim, break free from the Mississippi into the free states. By letting Huck tell his personal story, Mark Twain tackles America’s hurtful contradiction of racial discrimination and segregation within a “free” and “equal” society.
