Before I start here I want to acknowledge one thing that I’m not a huge fan of classics and I haven’t read much from this particular genre !! The most logical reason behind is that they classics edition most of the time have teeny tiny fonts . They kill my eyes . 😑
It’s quite challenging for me to recommend some classics . Rather I would love to hear from you guys 😄
But right now , few classics books I think you all should read if you haven’t already ….
“Mother” by Maxim Gorky is one of my favourite classics .It s one of the most revolutionaly books in the world and it does not need an explanation . This book was first published in 1906. The book is full of Emotion . It gives a reason to think about society . Where few of people are living a comfortable life , most of the people are trying hard to earn a piece of bread . This book is going to impact readers mind .
2. The very best of Jim Corbett
This book is published by @alephbooks . This one contains 14 stories. The stories describe how the tigers became men eating tigers . And these prove that Corbett was not only a great hunter but also one of the great reserver of our country .
Why you need to read this book
1. Through this book you will get to know about Tigers – their nature and their life circle . Corbett had described the nature of other animals too. I request you to read the Author Note .
2. Not only the animals, through his own you can get to know the beauty of the jungles of Kumaon too. Please read the Introduction before you start reading the stories .
3. The reader will enjoy the thrill and the adventure through his amazing writing skills
3. Black beauty
I love children classics because they are the mind boosters. Thays why i t to suggest Black Beauty by Anna Seweel . A read from childhood when you reread in your life again you feel mixture of joy, glad and sorrow that you haven’t felt the story right way that time.
This is an autobiographical Memoir of a Horse . His name is Black beauty due to is dark black body . His early life starts with his mother in a pleasant meadow . But soon his life took him from places to places , handed masters to masters .
This book reflex the cruelties those are done with the horses and what kindness can do . Their pain both physically and mentally described here with a deep heart . And I really felt a heavy heart when knowing the truth of Rob Roy . The story of ginger too moist my eyes.
Anikal Farm by George Orwell is one of the most amazing classics I have ever read. A short read it with a deep meaning . This book ,at the begining , will remember you of Ishop’s tales , atleast it reminded of that so. But then the book becomes real and more real . We the people who live in democratic country can relate to it so much . The society seems to be for everyone but the reality plays another role ! I think you should read it. It’s under 100 pages at it will blow your mind !
This classic is little different from the others. The prophet by Khalil Gibran is a spiritual read. It’s another short read with lots of knowledge about life, love ,relations . There are some meaningful illustrations by the author himself !
I have to talk about this book ! If you have read Murakami then you already have heard about Franz Kafka . Metamorphosis is my first read by this author . And to be honest I was shook by this story. It is another short read. But the story line is !!! Here the protagonist one day woke up in the morning and found that he had been turned into an insect ! He used to work as a clark and he was the only bread earner in his family . His transformation impacted his family . This book gives us a cruel truth of life. To know what it is you should read this book .
Wow! I’m pretty happy that I have recommended a lot ! More that I expect 😄
