Lord Jim / Joseph Conrad. - Londyn : Penguin, [1994]. - 312, [1] s. ; 18 cm.
(Penguin Popular Classics)
When "Lord Jim" first appeared in 1900, many took Joseph Conrad to task for couching an entire novel in the form of an extended conversation--a ripping good yarn, if you like. Conrad defended his method, insisting that people really do talk for that long, and listen as well. In fact his chatty masterwork requires no defense--it offers up not only linguistic pleasures but a timeless exploration of morality.

Scenes of Clerical Life / George Eliot. - Londyn : Everyman's Library, 1976. - 334, [4] s. ; 18 cm.
Słowo kluczowe: English novel ; clergy
The religious characters that are at the centre of these stories are really devices above all: although they are real, fleshed out men, they function almost as invisible narrators, allowing the reader to wander at leisure over a cast of other characters, where the 'real' action is going on. Thus, for example, the tale "Mr Gilfil's Love Story", while superficially being the story of the one great love of the Reverend Gilfil's life, really belongs to the girl he loved: it's her story. Likewise the Reverend Tryan is ostensibly the centre of "Janet's Repentance", but in fact the story is a beautiful portrait of a female-dominated community, with at its centre, an incredibly moving and powerful tale of an abusive marriage and a wife who finds her salvation in doing good. It is fundamentally a Christian book: but it's much more than just a book about Christians, which is why this book is still in print and hasn't faded into insignificance.

Forsyte makes a solid, well researched case for his ending to the "Mystery of Edwin Drood", based on Dickens' comments to contemporaries, original illustrations, and other works with which Dickens would have been familiar and by which he was likely to have been influenced. The second half of the book is a plausible pastiche based on his conclusions. Truly enjoyable and believable.

In this, his first novel, William Golding gave the traditional adventure story an ironic, devastating twist. The boys' delicate sense of order fades, and their childish fears are transformed into something deeper and more primitive. Their games take on a horrible significance, and before long the well-behaved party of schoolboys has turned into a tribe of faceless, murderous savages.

Lady Chatterley's Lover / David Herbert Lawrence. - Middlesex : Penguin, [b.r.]. - 317 s. ; 18 cm.
"Lady Chatterley's Lover" is a bold exploration of illicit carnal love between a member of the gentry and her servant. Banned as obscene on publication in 1928, its notoriety - and readership - soared when it was finally published in full in 1960. The daring novel, describing the intense affair between the sexually frustrated Connie and Mellors, the family game-keeper, is widely regarded as D. H. Lawrence's most famous work. It remains an utterly compelling and thrilling read today.

Journey Down a Rainbow / J. B. Priestley, Jacquetta Hawkes. - Middlesex : Penguin, [ 1969]. - 218, [3] s. ; 18 cm.
A very interesting insight into the American way of life from two very different perspectives, the simple life of the pueblo Indians and the brash, consumerism money based culture of oil rich Houston. The descriptions of the two regions was such that you felt you were there viewing it in person. Very much worth a read.

Great Apes / Will Self. - Londyn : Bloomsbury, [1997]. - XI, 404 s. ; 22 cm.
Some people lose their sense of proportion, others their sense of scale, but Simon Dykes, a middle-aged, successful London painter, has lost his sense of perspective in a most disturbing fashion. After a night of routine, pedestrian dabauchery, traipsing from toilet to toilet, and imbibing a host of narcotics on the way, Simon wakes up cuddled in his girlfriend's loving arms. Much to his dismay, however, his girlfriend has turned into a chimpanzee. To add insult to injury, the psychiatric crash team sent to deal with him as he flips his lid is also comprised of chimps. Indeed, the entire city is overrun by clever primates, who, when they are not jostling for position, grooming themselves, or mating some of the females, can be found driving Volvos, hanging out on street corners, and running the world. Nonetheless convinced that he is still a human, Simon is confined to the emergency psychiatric ward of Charing Cross Hospital, where he becomes the patient of Dr. Zack Busner, clinical psychologist, medical doctor, anti-psychiatrist, and former television personality -- an expert at the height of his reign as alpha male. As Busner attempts to convince him that 'everyone who is fully sentient in this world are chimpanzees, ' Simon struggles with the horrifying delusion that he is really a human trapped in a chimp's body.

Lucky Jim / Kingsley Amis. - Middlesex : Penguin Books, 1976. - 250, [1] s. ; 18 cm.
Kingsley Amis's witty campus novel, Lucky Jim is a comedy that skewers the hypocrisies and vanities of 1950s academic life. This Penguin Modern Classics edition contains an introduction by David Lodge. Jim Dixon has accidentally fallen into a job at one of Britain's new red brick universities. A moderately successful future in the History Department beckons - as long as Jim can stave off the unwelcome advances of fellow lecturer Margaret, survive a madrigal-singing weekend at Professor Welch's, deliver a lecture on 'Merrie England' and resist Christine, the hopelessly desirable girlfriend of Welch's awful son Bertrand. Inspired by Amis's friend, the poet Philip Larkin, Jim Dixon is a timeless comic character, adrift in a hopelessly gauche and pretentious world.
