  5. The Odyssey by Homer

Part ancient history, part fantasy, and nobody's quite sure exactly where the border between the two lies. The Odyssey is a great adventure story and a broadening experience. It reminds one that human nature never changes but human culture does. While Odysseus is the prototypical hero of our modern age, brave and crafty, ancient Greece as depicted here was a very violent, very foreign and very politically incorrect world.

A book that all ages can enjoy, with adventure, social commentary and humor. Twain said, “A classic is something that everybody wants to have read and nobody wants to read.”  Huckleberry Finn is the exception to Twain’s own rule.

Raskolnikov, a poverty-stricken student and self-described genius, theorizes that compassionate ends excuse evil means. This leads to his murder of a St. Petersburg pawnbroker. He is overcome with guilt, and it is Dostoyevsky’s narrative of his tortured psyche that make Crime and Punishment such an exceptional psychological thriller.
