As an avid reader, I am always looking for great new reads to come my way. That is why I am providing a list of the top greatest books of all time for any other readers who may be in a pickle trying to decide what book they are going to delve into next!
My first choice for the greatest book of all time would be The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain. It just wouldn’t be right to not have a Mark Twain book on a list for the greatest books of all time and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn has always been a favorite of mine. Not only is it wildly entertaining, but it is also an excellent literary figure. Huck Finn proves to be a complex character who is loved by both the characters and the reader. If you haven’t read it yet, this is definitely something you will want to check out.
The next book to make my list of the top five greatest books of all time is Moby Dick, by Herman Melville. Most people have read this enticing novel about the cruelty of whale hunting that haunted our previous generations, but if you haven’t definitely make it a priority to do so! Moby dick not only is a great story, but it also has a great moral as well, never keep chasing something that is unobtainable.
The third book I would like to add to my list of the five greatest books of all time is Don Quixote by Miguel De Cervantes. Don Quixote has long been a literary staple for the Spanish community and for good reason. Don Quixote explores the idea of becoming something you want to be and living out a fantasy because sometimes fantasy is better than real life. Miguel uses realism in such a way to make the reader feel as though they are living the life of Don Quixote and therefore becoming more and more engaged with his fantasy that he is living out.
Number four on my list of the five best books of all time would have to be Crime and Punishment, by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Let’s face it, you can’t go wrong with a murder mystery novel written in the perspective of the killer. This drama filled mystery is one of the greatest reads yet due to the excellent poetic writing that was done by Fyodor as well as an enticing mystery that everyone loves to engage in. This book will leave you on the edge of your seat the entire time your reading it.
The fifth and final book I want to add to my list would be Pride and Prejudice. This elegant novel describing the life of an aristocrat during a period of time that didn’t allow for many decisions to made among woman. It is a delightful novel that will not disappoint.
