  • I’m surprised Les Miserables wasn’t mentioned. I read the whole unabridged version in high school. It’s such a compelling tale of a man who had nineteen years of his life stolen away just for trying to steal some bread in order to feed his sister and her children. He loses all faith in god, his fellow man, and love yet through several people he comes in contact with after his release from prison he gains a renewed faith in god, what even the smallest acts of kindness can do, how to love again, and how to let his loved one go to peruse her own happiness and future. It’s such a beautiful and incredible story, though I would recommend you pick up an abridged copy as the unabridged contains long unnessacary tangents such as a 15 page long explanation of the construction and history of the Parisian sewers.

  • "The Man Who Laughs" ("L'Homme Qui Rit") by Victor Hugo
    Set in England at the turn of the 18th century, this novel tells the tale of Gwynplaine, a boy who is disfigured so his face always appears to be smiling. Not knowing why this was done and abandoned by the men who mutilated him, Gwynplaine survives a snowstorm, rescuing a blind baby girl named Dea along the way, and together, they find shelter with Ursus, a gruff philosopher and peddler of herbal remedies. Gwynplaine grows up to be a clown to provide for his family and he and Dea fall in love. Yet of course, it wouldn't be a Victor Hugo novel without political corruption, intrigue, and the rich making their paradise from the hell of the poor, and all these things are revealed as Gwynplaine discovers his past and the reason for his disfigurement. It's a fantastic read, but then again, I'm a little biased–it's my favorite Hugo novel, so much so I've written a play adaptation.

  • You honestly don't need to "read a book" before you die; just get outside, see the sea, breathe the fresh air, feel the Sun, have some fun… Life truly is too short here not experience it outside the comfort of your "peace of mind" and closed space (somewhere alone)… 🙂

  • 1:20 The "novel" is well worth reading???? Are you having a laugh, MsMojo?? It is THREE books. It's the Lord of the Rings Trilogy made up of "The Fellowship of the Ring," "The Two Towers," and "The Return of the King." I am praying that the MsMojo research team truly did not think that there was one book called "The Lord of the Rings"!!!

  • On this list, I've read Lord of the rings and Jane Eyre (among my favorites), Frankenstein, The Great Gatsby, The Picture of Dorian Gray, The Count of Monte Cristo, Huckleberry Finn, The hunchback of Notre Dame and Don Quixote.

  • I absolutely loved Jane Eyre! I first read a revised version when I was ten, and didn't understand it. Thankfully inpicked it up again, this time in the full version, when I was a teen and realized the deeper meaning!

  • Typiskt att allt mörkt och ont var "mörkhyade* och att de" goda" va ljusare än solen. Inte undra på att Tolkien är Bevisat rasist. Inte precis som att han smög ang det. Bättre än twilight mormoner
