    "Pride and Prejudice is a classic, and a good, enjoyable read f you like historical books, books about relationships and family, romance, and subtlety. You will enjoy all of the interactions and observations that the books heroine Elizabeth, wittily makes, and her observations on the absurdity of the manners required at the time, and the pan that they can cause are also worthy of reading and reflecting on. How far our society has come, and changed, since Elizabeth's time."

    "Moby Dick is widely considered an American classic. It's a book rich in symbolism, with many hidden or obscured elements that might not be apparent on the first read. The book itself is rather good, though maybe just a bit overrated, I would say. Apparently it is offered for free here, though it seems to me like it least costs a token sum, from what I can see. There's probably somewhere to obtain it for free. "

    "The Odyssey is a classic journey story with the hero (Odysseus) making his way home after a war. I read this in my Intro to Literature class in college and I've seen references to it -- some direct and some not -- throughout other works. Everyone should read it or be familiar with it to understand many western cultural references. Highly recommended."

    #5Alice's Adventures In Wonderland

    Alice's Adventures In Wonderland
    Alice's Adventures In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll is a book where wordplay, parody, and logical and philosophical puzzles are everywhere. For all the surface playfulness, there is meaning in every page.

    "Alice in Wonderland is such a bizarre book, but it's really fun to go through especially if you have kids. Despite popular belief it was not influenced by drugs in the writing, and it still holds up for its delightfully whimsical characters."

    "Thornfield Hall's description alone is worth the read. Even if you have read it, maybe it's time to reread it. Younger people who have not read it should."
