    Anna Karenina, closely followed by Great Expectations

    War and Peace is right up there, too! In fact, I'm currently in the process of reading it for the 2nd time (it'll take me quite a while!).

    I'm sure this already exists somewhere, but hey ho!

    My favourite has to be Brideshead Revisited. I adore that book!

    So what is your favourite novel?

    There is no other book that i would advise a person to steer the hell away from more than brideshead revisitied. That book was mad boring. MAD.

    ****ing catholics

    I digress

    L'Assomoir by Emile Zola... :love:
    Part of Zola's Les Rougon-Macquart series (7th if I'm not mistaken) but absolutetly brilliant.
    Also up there is Cousin Bette by Honore de Balzac and of course Tolstoy's War and Peace, probably the greatest novel ever written.

    Ugh, American drizzle my friend, The Great Gatsby is but an inferior creation to the sheer majesty and wonder of Brideshead. Showered in history, tradition and Old Money (not like the couple centuries of Tom and Daisy's wealth). 😉

    Im not here for tom and empty daisy. Gastby, (and to a lesser extent nick) is what makes the book. we need more gatsby's in this world damnit.

    brideshead was too much back and forth with charles and sebastian. i know its the 1920s but damn gimme some action. the ending with charles and sebastian's sister came out of nowhere and i did not appreciate the ending mate
