Books I Can’t Live Without, Part Five


This post is fifth in a series analyzing my own connection with the “top 100 books the UK can’t live without” (pdf). In previous posts (Part One, Part Two, Part Three, and Part Four), I discussed books 61-100. In this post, I will examine books 51-60.

60. Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

On my to-read list. Great title.

59. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon.

Roger sent me this book; I loved it. I wrote a review here.

58. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley.

On my to-read list for sure.

57. A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.

Now despite what I said about Oliver Twist, I actually do want to read this one.

56. The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon.

Never heard of it.

55. A Suitable Boy by Vikrem Seth.

Never heard of it.

54. Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen.

I read this one about ten years ago and LOVED it. “Give me some occupation, Miss Dashwood, or I shall go mad.” Almost as good as Pride and Prejudice.

53. Cold Comfort Farm by Stella Gibbons.

Never heard of it.

52. Dune by Frank Herbert.

I’ll pass. Sorry, Dad.

51. Life of Pi by Yann Martel.

On my to-read list for about two years now. Some day.
