Booking Through Thursday: Best Book You've Never Read

The question of the day at Booking Through Thursday is: "What is the best book you haven't read."

Like many of the bloggers who posted at BTT I can't list just one book and this list isn't exclusive, but it is a list of ten books other people have raved about, but I have yet to read.

1. A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
2. Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh
3. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
4. John Adams by David McCullough
5. Paradise Lost by John Milton
6. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
7. Emma by Jane Austen
8. The Princess Bride by William Goldman
9. The Importance of Being Ernest by Oscar Wilde
10. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

The only one on your list that I've read completely is The Princess Bride. A Tale of Two Cities and Paradise Lost are both at the top of my list for books that I'll probably never finish. Every time I start them I fall asleep.

You must read Hitchhiker's Guide. Just be warned not to drink milk while you are doing it. You will snort it out your nose while laughing.

I laughed at your list because almost all of those books are on mine too. Will I ever get to them?

I read Wuthering two years ago, and was not impressed. I guess I'm just not a Heathcliff girl.

William Goldman got on my nerves. But I love the movie.

Tale of Two Cities is good (what am I saying, of course it is, it's Dickins.)

Paradise Lost is brilliant in spots.

Emma is Emma but beware if you listen to an audio version, Mrs. Bates' monologues are SO annoying to actually listen to!
