Sorry das es auf englisch ist.. hoffe mir kann trotzdem wer helfen!
"I have rather recently started reading novels again and while I am not looking for a book to read "right away" - I would like to know which books I should definitely read at some point and/or keep a lookout for;
I am mostly keen on classics - pretty much stories we have all at least heard of. I'm not all that fond of most releases of our time...
Fantasy is clearly my favourite genre though I also enjoy reading slice of life or deeper stories;
Harry Potter was a series that I enjoyed very much but I don't think that I would enjoy many similar stories as it takes place in our time..
Lord of the rings and other Tolkien novels are also ones that I enjoy but I think right now I am looking for somewhat lighter ones perhaps.
For the fantasy area I think I would like to find something in the direction of the following:
Howl's moving castle, The last unicorn, Tales from Earth sea, Narnia, His Dark Materials, Alice in Wonderland and so on...
I am also keen on finding more books such as from Jane Austen, The Bronte sisters and other english classics like the secret garden, Gullivers travels or perhaps some of Charles Dickens? (I have yet only read a christmas carol but would love to know which of his other novels I should turn to next)
I also very much like the Disc world novels though I lack time and money to start yet another near endless series of books... but I wouldn't say no to another fantasy story with comedy or parody attributes!
But yes, my main goal is to cover various english classics (not exclusively english though!) so it can be more than just "oh yea I’ve heard of that".
While looking for a classic novel lists I noticed that several are about war... I don't quite enjoy war related stories unless it is somehow fantasy like in Lord of the Rings etc...
Books that have already found their way into my collection:
- Alice in wonderland & Through the looking glass
- The Prince and the Pauper
- The Secret Garden
- A Christmas Carol
- Gulliver’s Travels
- The strange case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde
- The Hunch-back of Notre Dame
- Disc world novels
- His Dark Materials
- Howl’s moving castle
- The Sword of Truth
- Chronicles of Narnia
- Tales from Earthsea
- Harry Potter
- The last unicorn & more of P.S. Beagle
- The Ring of Allaire
- King killer chronicles
- The Hobbit/Lord of the rings/Other Tolkien Novels
- Bronte Sister’s novels
- Jane Austen novels
- A handful of Sovereigns
- Romeo & Juliet
- Sherlock Holmes
- Cloud Atlas
- Odysseys/The Iliad
- The Inugami Clan
Books I considered but am unsure of whether they are right for me? :
- Peter Pan
- Tom Sawyer
- Huckleberry Finn
- Oliver Twist
- Treasure island"
Thanks a bunch in advance! :)
