The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde – Wonderfully atmospheric and decadent, Wilde’s beautiful prose and sharp wit makes the 1890s feel like just yesterday, while showcasing the indulgences of the era.

Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe – When you read this book it is like you are immersed in the world, sitting down at the campfire listening to Achebe’s tale of cultures clashing and self discovery.

The Intuitionist by Colson Whitehead – One would never think elevator inspection could be so thrilling.
