10 Books Everyone Should Read Once

They feature not only memorable characters but also brilliant lessons that will stick in your mind long after reading the texts.

1. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald


The Great Gatsby is a purely modern tragedy. Scott charts and expertly explores the fall of a new millionaire on the land, Jay Gatsby. Jay attempts to win back the love of Daisy Buchanan, who is his former girlfriend, and who is now engaged to another tycoon. Jay ultimately has his downfall, just because he neglected to see Daisy’s true nature due to his obsessive desire for wealth and social status. Get some time to read this quality and fantastic book.

2. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee


A classic tale by Harper Lee set in the 1930s. From my experience reading this story, I found out that it perhaps is the original tale on the Deep South’s racial tensions. There is a main character known as Atticus Finch, a white lawyer who attempts to save the life of Robinson Tom. Robinson is a black man who has been accused of raping a white woman, though these are false accusations. The unfairness of the issue is further illuminated when Finch’s six-year-old daughter narrates. Her narration is effectively used by Harper Lee to bring out the incomprehensibility of the situation. Everyone deserves to read exciting tales which are also informative. Give this book a try. Read More.

3. The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood


Set in a dystopian future, Margaret explores the imagination of a world in which a majority of females are becoming infertile as a result of environmental catastrophes. Fertile women are rounded up and are made to remain silent. They are then forced to procreate with men in power. All this follows the seizure of what was on the United States of America by a fundamentalist religious group. Read More.
