Reading books is a great way to relax and drift away from the real world into fantastical stories and faraway lands. Some novels are so intriguing and impactful that they stand the test of time, no matter how long ago they were written. Here are four classic novels that every dedicated reader should consider exploring:
The Great Gatsby – Set in 1920’s Long Island, New York, this dramatic fiction book tells the tragic story of millionaire Jay Gatsby, whose love for a woman causes his eventual demise.
Frankenstein – When scientist Dr. Victor Frankenstein tries to create life using body parts of the deceased, he instead brings to life a hideous monster. When Dr. Frankenstein rejects the creature, the being attempts to destroy everything and everyone his creator loves.
Moby Dick – A whaling crew and their obsessed leader, Captain Ahab, attempt to find and capture the great white whale that took the captain’s leg many years ago.
Call of the Wild – This tale of survival focuses on a domesticated dog named Buck that is pulled from his comfortable life in California and sold into service as a sled dog in Yukon, Canada. Buck is forced to learn the ways of the wild or succumb to the harsh environment.
