4 Great Classic Books

Please use this sub-forum to discuss any fiction books or series that do not fit into one of the other categories. If the fiction book fits into one the other categories, please use that category instead.
Forum rules
While in the forum's younger and less active days this used to be the one and only forum for "reviews and discussions about specific books", this is now just the subforum "other fiction" in a more well-organized "reviews and discussions about specific books" section with subforums for each genre. Check it out! :) Remember, the forums in the reviews section (including this forum) are for posting about a single book or series in topic, and the topic title should include the book's title. If you are creating a new topic, please try to post it in one of the other genres rather than posting it here in the "other fiction" section. This is only for books that do not fit in any of the other genre categories we have listed.

The descriptions given for each book are quite interesting and I would like to read all the four books :)

Those are indeed great books, and I would also think that Dorian Gray is an awesome book, since it explores many themes, such as hedonism, morality and ethics.

I have read other classics including Frankenstein, Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, Hard Times and several others. These four are the next in my reading list.

I haven't read any of those four books but I do read classics.
My favorite ones are -
The Mayor of Casterbridge by Thomas Hardy - It got better and better with each read.
Les Miserables by Victor Hugo - Just heartbreaking.
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas - So much about life to learn from this book!
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain - It brings back nostalgia and is fun!
