  1. I always like to answer this question. Although I haven’t read many classics but whatever I have read uptill now are my favorite… I love Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, Sense and Sensibility… 🙂

  2. This question is easy. 🙂 My favorite classic is Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. I love the combination of politics, tragedy, drama and romance. There’s a reason this book has inspired multiple remakes, movies and a musical. It’s timeless and thrilling! The characters are superb. These same reasons are why I find myself reading all 1000 pages over and over again!

  3. My favorite classic is “Jane Eyre”. it was a moving story about love and redemption that stayed with me long time after the last page was turned.

    Thank you so much for this amazing giveaway!! 😀

  4. My favourite classic book HAS to be The Handmaid’s Tale – I know it’s not a ‘classic’ classic, but it’s still a pretty popular book. I had to read it in school and instantly fell in love with it and the genre.

    Thanks for the giveaway 🙂

  5. The Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie is definitely my favorite classic mystery novel. I love the way she wrote the mystery, it kept me in suspense. Just when I thought that I knew who the guilty party was there was a surprisingly unpredictable twist at the end. 🙂
    Still following you on twitter @Mont4_A

  6. My favorite novel is Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte…I was so immersed in the story and relationship between Cathy and Heathcliff.

  7. Without question, my favorite classic is Jane Eyre. Throughout the course of the novel you feel all of the emotions that a person can feel, and are connected to Jane in an uncanny sort of way.

  8. My favorite American classic is To Kill A Mocking Bird by Harper Lee. I was reminded of impactful this novel was for its time after watching a great documentary on the novel: Hey, Boo.

    What’s this Twitter thing you are talking about?!?

    But I did “Like” your page on the book face, haha.

  9. I havn’t read many classics, but out of the very few I’ve read, I like Call of the Wild and Pride and Prejudice the best.

  10. Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 40
    foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic
    but I had to share it with someone!
