Mr Jones of Manor Farm is so lazy and drunken that one day he forgets to feed his livestock. The ensuing rebellion under the leadership of the pigs Napoleon and Snowball leads to the animals taking over the farm. Vowing to eliminate the terrible inequities of the farmyard, the renamed Animal Farm is organised to benefit all who walk on four legs. But as time passes, the ideals of the rebellion are corrupted, then forgotten. And something new and unexpected emerges...

Desperate in his search of the secret of life, young Dr Victor Frankenstein attempts to construct and then bring to life a previously inanimate creature. He succeeds, yet immediately finds himself horrified and repulsed by the fruit of his long-lasting labors and, as a result, abandons the creature without a word. This action begins a series of tragic events in the life of the scientist, as the enraged monster begins his quest to fill every minute of Dr. Frankenstein’s life with terror, dread and misery.

Книга 4. Луїза Мей Олкотт. Good wives.

In mid-nineteenth-century Massachusetts, Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy March continue to encounter both joys and sorrows along life’s path, as they journey into womanhood both close to home and further away. The highs and lows of the four young women’s lives are shared with each other, and supported by the bond of their sisterhood.

Книга 5. Джозеф Конрад. Heart of Darkness.

«Heart of Darkness» is a small, but perhaps the most famous adventure story written by Joseph Conrad. The narrative is written on behalf of the sailor Marlowe, who tells the reader about his past adventures. In the African wilds, there is an illegally operating elephant bone mining company.

While crossing the continent, Marlowe travels to one of its divisions. As he is getting closer to his destination, the main character hears more and more stories about some almighty Kurtz, an agent of the company, whom the locals mention with fear and hatred.

What awaits Marlowe after meeting him?

Книга 6. Шарлотта Бронте. Jane Eyre.

Written and published in 1847, Charlotte Bronte’s «Jane Eyre» is a novel that traces the story of its title character and reflects her transformation from a timid child into an independent woman. Marked as an outcast by her appearance and her social status, Jane often finds herself isolated from the rest of the world. Yet it all changes after she falls for her mysterious employer, Mr Rochester. «Jane Eyre» is not merely an ordinary love story, however. This is a story of a resolute young woman whose spirit remains unbroken despite all the misfortunes on her path.

Книга 7. Луїза Мей Олкотт. Little women.

Little Women is a story that traces the lives of four sisters- gentle and agreeable Meg, straightforward and outspoken Joe, quiet and shy Beth, and dramatic and manipulative Amy. The novel shows the sisters’ life in Civil War New England and follows them as each of them matures and chooses her own life path. Originally created as a children’s novel, Little Women is a story that would be equally as interesting to an adult reader, as it is revolved around such themes as different versions of womanhood and a woman’s place in society.

Книга 8. Джейн Остін. Pride and prejudice.

«Pride and Prejudice» is a story about the love of a wealthy aristocrat and a modest but proud daughter of the owner of a small estate in the province.

Кинга 9. Артур Конан Дойл. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.

Venture back in time to Victorian London to join literature's greatest detective team — the brilliant Sherlock Holmes and his devoted assistant, Dr. Watson — as they investigate a dozen of their best-known cases

Книга 10. Френсіс Скотт Фіцджеральд. The Great Gatsby.

The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s third book, stands as the supreme achievement of his career. First published in 1925, this quintessential novel of the Jazz Age has been acclaimed by generations of readers. The story of the mysteriously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when The New York Times noted “gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession,” it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s.

Книга 11. Оскар Вайлд. The Picture of Dorian Gray.

The ones who are able to see the high meaning of beauty are cultural people. However, the chosen one is the one who sees only one thing in beauty: the Beauty itself ” said one of the most famous English poets, writers, playwrights, a bright and inimitable Oscar Wilde (1854-1900).

Oscar Wilde is the author of not only the world famous novel “Portrait of Dorian Gray”, but also of beautiful fairy tales combining the rich imagination of the writer and the ironic style of narration.

They sing the beauty of good deeds, sympathy for the offended and humanity. Wilde is also famous for such works as “Puffy Rocket”, “Infanta’s Birthday”, “Nightingale and the Rose”, “Princess’s Birthday”, “Faithful Friend”, “The Prince and the Swallow”, “The Egoist Giant”.

“The Canterville Ghost” is about a family who moves to a castle haunted by the ghost of a dead nobleman, who killed his wife and was starved to death by his wife’s brothers. The home of the Canterville Ghost was the ancient Canterville Chase, which has all the accoutrements of a traditional haunted house. Descriptions of the wainscoting, the library panelled in black oak, and the armour in the hallway characterise the setting. Wilde mixes the macabre with comedy, juxtaposing devices from traditional English ghost stories such as creaking floorboards, clanking chains, and ancient prophecies.
