Thank you for the invitation to friendship.
You are welcome to go through my shelf, with reviews I have been writing to record what I think of the various books or writers, and ask about any book I might have read.
I do have favourites among the well known ones, and they are sort of obvious when you go through the shelf. Isaac Asimov, Jane Austen, Pearl Buck, Brönte sisters, Agatha Christie, AJ Cronin, and towards the end of roman alphabet George Bernard Shaw, John Steinbeck, PG Wodehouse, are some of them. In the middle there are W Somerset Maughm and Daphne du Maurier and others. John Grisham and Frederick Forsyth amongst current ones and to some extent Brown though I don't know if he will ever match his most famous work again. Arthur Hailey does a good job of describing various industries and Upton Sinclair is without parallel in his general honesty and particularly in his 11 volume World's End series depicting the Eurocentric world view from end of first world war to the cold war, giving everything in between that he could that was important in the world.
I suppose this is not very classic literature, and there must be others I liked, but it should do as a list to begin with.
I have three question from you on my page about Sons and Lovers (2) and about Great Gatsby, and while I am fond of neither they are literature, so I am in a quandary. If you find a good review from someone who likes it go by that, but I think you are a bit young judging from the icon photo that looks like my baby brother when he was your age. Postpone them would be the safest I can say.
