What is the best book you’ve read so far for The Classics Club — and why? Be sure to link to the post where you discussed the book! (Or, if you prefer, what is your least favourite read so far for the club, and why?)
If I’m not mistaken I’ve joined The Classic Club since June 2012, but shame on me I’ve only read 5 of 65 books I pledged before. There was one play from Oscar Wilde (The Importance of being Earnest) and four novels (Mansfield Park, Wuthering Heights, Silas Marner and The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes). I’ve enjoyed each of them except Mansfield Park that I rather said it was a little bit dull.
It’s difficult to choose the best one but I adore Oscar Wilde’s play. I was surprised never thought that reading a play will amuse me, the script was well written, witty and funny at the same time. The second reason why I’m fond of this play is this play have only 200 page! This number I consider reasonable for reading in my leisure time. It’s quite different when I read Charles Dicken’s Great Expectation, I felt like I was in great desperation because I read it for almost a month and I wasn’t reach half of that book yet.
I’m looking forward to read another play by Oscar Wilde or other writer that’s why I joined a challenge hosted by Fanda Classiclit, it called Let’s Read Plays. I hope I can manage this challenge and end up by completed it.
