All I have ever read in my life which is a shame as I absolutely loved all of them are
In the name of the rose - Umberto eco

The trial - Franz kafka

Of human bondage - W. Somerset Maugham

Fear and loathing in las vegas - Hunter S Thompson

1984 - George Orwell

Will rate them in the same order as well. Also halfway through Don Quixote by M . Cervantes and Foucault’s pendulum by Umberto Eco should be next.

{Ed001's Note - only one of them I have read is 1984. Very good book. Animal Farm by Orwell is a good read too.}

Loved fear and loathing the movie admittedly. As for 1984, cracking book. Animal farm is outstanding too though I feel 1984 is his best. My wife only read it a few months ago and she was amazed how apt and foreshadowing and absolutely relevant it has become in this day and age. For lack of a better term, the importance of fake news propaganda.

{Ed001's Note - 1984 is defo his best, but Animal Farm often gets overlooked as a kid's film. Most people seem to miss the message.}

Spot in Ed, I was one of those kids. I was shown the cartoon when I was far too young and it upset me so much. Only when I read the book years later did I see the symbolism.

{Ed001's Note - I have never seen the cartoon but I didn't read the book until I was about 11 or 12, so old enough to get it and find it really disturbing. It also put me off eating pork for a week until me ma cooked bacon and that cured me.}

Agree ed and aoe, 1984 is such a good read. Luckily my friend suggested a good list of classics which I should read and Animal farm is also on it.

Definitely would suggest kafka’s - The trial to both of you. Funny thing is kafka saw himself as a failure because of his father and after two of his books failed to do well he never released any of his other material. Only after his death a friend of his released the other books.

{Ed001's Note - a good classic to read is Fahrenheit 451 as well.}

Will add it on my list ed. Already have an idea what its about. Might make connections just like orwell, 1984 and india.

{Ed001's Note - I hope you enjoy it mate.}
