To kill a Mocking Bird

 

To Kill a Mocking Bird

 

Authored by Harper Lee, this Pulitzer prize-winning novel is a classic tale set in the America of the past when apartheid was at an all-time high. Written from the viewpoint of a 5-year old, Jean Louise Finch, the beautifully woven story talks about her relationship with her brother Jem and their widowed father Atticus Finch, who is a lawyer. What is is refreshing is the perspective with which the book takes on mundane things that make up a child’s life entertaining. It brilliantly captures how Finch fights for the rights of a black man – Tom Robinson who is wrongly accused of the rape of a white woman. If you want to devour a piece of American history with its problems of racial inequality and distrust, this book is as good as it gets.

A Splendid Thousand Suns

 

Written by Afghani author Khaled Hosseini, ‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’ is a tear jerker that captured a huge fan following after its release. The book grapples with the issues faced by two women in the war-infested land of Afghanistan that just saw the influx of the Taliban. Two women with diverse backgrounds are brought together in situations that leave you reaching for the nearest tissue. Beyond everything, it is a story of love and hope.

Pride and Prejudice

 

Pride and Prejudice

 

Few books have the power to hold your attention until the end and if you are fond of romances, then Pride and Prejudice is a classic must read. The smirks of a certain dashing young man will have you swooning to no end and if you are a nature lover, then the walks with Elizabeth Bennet will inspire you to get outdoors to think and procrastinate about life. Unconventionally bold for her time, Jane Austen manages to keep you glued until the end.

What makes these books a classic is not their age of publication; it is the quality of content. The stories reverberate through your conscience long after you have read them and they are stored in the recess of your mind like beautiful memories.

 

Mark Twain

 

Mark Twain hit the bull's eye when he suggested: “Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.” So what are you waiting for? Grab a book, find a cozy place and delve into the world that promises to take you on a roller coaster of emotions!
