Favorite classics and why? 🙂

Gone With the Wind- i didn’t care much about the romance in this book, it was the way Scarlett handled all the obstacles and hardships caused by the war all by herself. This book is very empowering for women.
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley because it’s a beautifully poignant telling of how our actions and words impact others, and how important it is to SEE a person for how they are on the inside, instead of looking at a person’s outer appearance.
I recently downloaded it, hope to get to it soon. I haven’t seen any movie adaptation either, so I’ll be reading it with no preconceptions!
I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Especially after my struggle to get through Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
Mary Shelly was such a fascinating women, and we get a glimpse into her inner life through Frankenstein. I can’t even count how many times I’ve reread it.
I started reading it today, spent an hour on the treadmill with it. The archaic language slowed me down at first, but I’m getting into a rhythm with it now.
Jane Eyre – I love that it’s not a perfectly happy ending!
The Phantom of the Opera, The Odyssey by Homer, The Scarlett Pimpernel by Baroness Orcsy, anything by Shakespeare, The Grimm Fairy Tales by The Brothers Grimm, and several others but I love these.
LOVED The Odyssey!
Sink me! I love the Scarlet Pimpernel and so few people are familiar with it. Actually stayed in the Margurite and Percy Suite at Nora Robert’s B&B in Boonsboro Maryland! 🙂
Yay! I love the book. I loved the movie with Leslie Howard too
Oh, I love Phantom!
Mine is To kill a mockingbird. 🙂
It’s one of my favorites too. Now I really feel old, calling it a classic! 😉
It’s my favorite book of all time, which a lot of people find strange. Haha
Jane Eyre because… Rochester. Also To Kill a Mockingbird, because… Atticus.
I’m surprised no one said Pride and Prejudice!
I actually enjoyed P&P very much. But I’ll be honest, I just read it within the past couple of years for the first time ever. And I’ve never seen any of the film versions. (Except the Austenland one, if that counts.)
I would say To Kill a Mockingbird and Anne of Green Gables (if that counts as a classic)
Is the catcher in the rye considered a classic? Lol I loved that book
It’s definitely a classic!
I love it. A lot.
Jane Eyre: thriller, romance, family drama. Plus, Jane is one spunky heroine, and Rochester is sexy as hell.
