Tony Benn’s Diaries are brilliant if you are into politics

The Wheel of Time series can be hard to get into but is brilliant fantasy

The Thrawn Trilogy is no longer Star Wats canon, but is still masterful and arguably a large reason behind the reboot in Star Wars popularity during the 90s through to today.

Definitely agree. And also one of the best series of books ever in my opinion.

Early to mid 'Disc-world' series by Terry Pratchett.

Everything, and I mean everything, by Douglas Adams.

1984 and Animal Farm by Orwell, and if you are into his non-fictions, Homage to Catatonia is a especially vivid account of his time as part of the International Brigade during the Spanish Civil War. Sad to think that he'd be tried as a terrorist under present laws, rather than laud an idealistic hero fighting against oppression.

Catch-22

Wilt. (Or anything else by Tom Sharp, I just happen to think that Wilt was his best)

These are just some of the novels that I think will make for a good read.

Also, a Kindle would be great for back ground reading for humanities and social science undergrads, as most of the classics are downloadable for free in ebook versions (eg., Marx, Hume, Kant, Darwin, JS Mill, Adam Smith, Thomas Hobbes, Thomas Paine, etc.).

Happy reading!

Anything by Haruki Murakami (try Norweigan Wood), Keigo Higashino (Salvation of a Saint), or Natsuo Kirino (Real World). Japanese novels are beautifully written and very refreshing to read.

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde is a brilliant text and I would highly recommend. Similarly, within the theme of hedonism; Gatsby is the obvious choice.

Recently i have become consumed and intrigued by the Clifton Chronicles by Jeffrey Archer!

War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy, for me it’s close to perfection and is long if you want something to keep you going for a while. It’s a must read if you like history but also has an amazingly deep story with some very poignant thought points.

For a short read I don’t think you can beat The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway, a great little book which summarises his writing style perfectly by saying a lot with very little.
