1. inkandpaperhowl answered: Also, also Treasure Island. And Jekyll and Hyde (because I’ve been meaning to read that one for years, but haven’t gotten around to it, and maybe if someone I know is reading it, I’ll actually get to it. Haha). NEVER READ FRANKENSTEIN. SOOOO BORING. If you have already read Frankenstein, I’m sorry. If you liked Frankenstein…I didn’t mean to offend. :)
  2. inkandpaperhowl answered: Also, The Three Musketeers. And if you’re going into Dickens, I’d suggest Tale of Two Cities over Great Expectations, and GE over David Copperfield. TTC is all French Revolution-y goodness, and GE has its moments, mostly b/c Herbert Pocket is adorable. :)
  3. inkandpaperhowl answered: Oscar Wilde, any.
  4. musicdanceread answered: Not exactly original classics, but they are good and old Brave New World or The Importance of Being Earnest
  5. abalidoth answered: For classics, try 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Treasure Island, or The Three Musketeers.

Excuse the jerry-rigged replies.

This 1800s trend from you guys cracks me up. (Though considering the Dickens on the list…)

I’m surprised at the Treasure Island recs. It’s really that good? Wow. On the list. Same with Three Musketeers.

Now starting from 5 on up:

5. Why 20,000 Leagues? It’s one I’ve honestly never thought I’d read, so I’m curious.

4. Those are TOTALLY classics. Earnest is SO much fun to read! Goodness, Wilde is a genius. Can’t believe I forgot to put Brave New World on my list though. Thanks!

1-3. For some reason, I’ve always been intrigued by David Cooperfield. No clue why, but I have been. It probably wouldn’t be the best book to introduce me to Dickens, though. Hrm. I think I need to do some Dickens research…

AND WHAT? Frankenstein was GLORIOUS. I’M SO OFFENDED GET OFF OF MY BLOG. Ahaha, though by “glorious,” I mean it wasn’t my favorite, though it was respectable. Bahaha, I just. Oh, Frankenstein. You poor monster. *hugs* So I should probably give Jekyll and Hyde a try. And then I’ll nag you about it, so good plan, overall :)

Thank you all for the help!
