The January Classics Club question:
"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 favorite read so far for the club, and why?)"
Having just started on this official classics quest in September, I've only read three books for the challenge so far. The best of the three without a doubt is A Tale of Two Cities. (My review here.) And why is it the best?
- an unlikely hero
- a tumultuous historical backdrop
- witty and at times sarcastic writing
- it's a Charles Dickens that's not huge but manageable!
- love and sacrifice at its very best
- plot twists and other sneaky stuff
- an ending that will stick with you forever
What's a favorite classic you've read recently... and what makes it so good?
