Haven't we had this thread before? I noticed last time that I am apparently one of the only people on this site who hasn't worked there way through most of the 'heaviest' novels every written! I am therefore FAR too embarrassed to list my top 15 books!! (Stephen King anyone??? )

Well said Lady in Red . . . I was thinking the same thing!

My favourites are (in no particular order)

All the The 3 Bronte sisters' works
Thomas Hardy's works
Elizabeth Gaskell - Wives and Daughters
Gustav Flaubert - Madame Bovary
Margaret Drabble - The Millstone

I also like fantasy types:

JRR Tolkein
Stephen Donaldson : The Aventures of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever
Ted Hughes - The Iron Man - great imagery and very poetical
