The meme question for this month is:
What is your favorite classic book? Why?
There are so many that I love that it’s hard to restrict myself to just one. My favorite classics are those that are also my favorite genre of novels aka horror/adventure/suspense. Think The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins, which is an awesome suspense story and a classic.
Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson has got to be the 1st classic adventure story I read and re-read multiple times. I remember whole dialogues and sequences from that book.
My favorite horror (gothic is a better term for it, I guess) is probably The Turn of the Screw by Henry James, which I have also re-read multiple times. In spite of that, I still do not understand what exactly went down in the novel. But, not knowing does not reduce the fun of reading it one whit.
So, here you go…you asked me for one favorite classic novel and you got three.
What are your favorite classics?
