My 10 favorite literature classics

Updated: Feb 5, 2020

Not necessarily in this order

Here is a list of my 10 favorite. I did not order them from most to least; it's just too hard. So here goes:

1. A Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne (1864).

2. Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad (1902).

3. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain (1885).

4. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (1813).

5. David Copperfield by Charles Dickens (1850).

6. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson (1886).

7. Great Expectations by Charles Dickens (1861).

8. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum (1900).

9. The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan (1678).

10. Vampyre by John Polidori (1819).

#10 may not be deemed a classic by some (I first found out about it in an English class in college) but it's a great story, and so it made the list. I could go on and on praising the writers for producing and sharing such gems. #'s 8 and 9 are probably the closest in theme to my first book.

Well, I best be getting on. There are a lot more stories waiting to be read. It's tough work, but somebody has to do it, and I'm glad it's me!
