LES MISÉRABLES

by Victor Hugo

WAR AND PEACE

by Leo Tolstoy

THE CHRYSALIDS

by John Wyndham

The Chrysalids is a harrowing text about the oppressiveness of bigotry, and it’s still painfully relevant today. Among post-apocalyptic novels, it has few challengers in literary quality, in depth, in it's memorable group of characters, in the scope of its themes or in in how much heart it possesses.

ONE DAY

by David Nicholls

'You can live your whole life not realising that what you're looking for is right in front of you.'

A 'page-turning story filled with heart-melting romance'  (Elle). One of the most "emotionally riveting love stories you’ll ever encounter"  (People). 

HATCHET

by Gary Paulsen

Brian Robeson is the only survivor when the single-engine plane crashes. His body battered, his clothes in shreds, Brian must now stay alive in the boundless Canadian wilderness. 

In this breathless, heart-gripping drama, a boy is pitted against the wilderness with only a hatchet and a will to live.

MISS MARPLE
Short Stories for English Language Learners
TELLS A STORY

by Agatha Christie

What makes Miss Marple so effective as a detective is her ability to blend into the background . . .

“The finest detective God ever made. Natural genius cultivated in suitable soil." (Sir Henry Clithering)
