Friday Favourites - a chance to rave about a favourite reading/book related topic each week.
Sometimes you just want a chance to rave about some favourite aspect of
reading that doesn't really come up during regular blogging posts -
that's what this is about. I'm willing to bet that at least some of
those will come up one week or another.
This week I'm asking what your favourite classic is. And, yes that question could be considered open to debate. After all, there's classic science fiction, classic westerns etc. It'll be amusing if you opt to answer one of those, but I'm actually referring to the more "classic" version: books like Jane Austen's or Charles Dickens etc.
My answer is:
The Jungle Book). Recently, I've discovered a few more good classics - truly classic science fiction by Jules Verne, but other than that, it's Jane Eyre for me.
There's something about the story that grabs me every time I read it, I don't quite know what, but where a lot of the other classics I've tried have bored me completely (I think it was Shirley that I couldn't get more than a couple of chapters into), this one captures me.
What's your answer?
