One of my all time favs is a novella by Richard Bach - Jonathan Livingston Seagull. It's a story about a Seagull who is trying to learn about life. I read it in my youth and picked it up again as an adult because it meant so much to me!

Why people persist in claiming the Catcher in the Rye and the Great Gatsby as great stories I wouldn't know.There are many better American books by far.Another dud is On the Road by Jack Kerouac!These books give the impression they are written by children.Perhaps that's what many readers want?

Overall good selection but I too would have chosen Jonathan Livingston Seagull-much more going on there than reading a face value and a lovely vignette and absolutely Camus’ the Stranger-fabulous little gem. I also might consider Ford Maddox Ford’s the Good Solidier or and I cannot recall the author Blood and Wine and Italian Novella

Some other books could be included if you propose the twenty modern books that you cannot put down, once you begin the first sentence.

‘Being There’ by Jerry Kosinski is my favourite short book. The film doesn’t do it justice. I picked it up in a local shop on a day I had to wait in for a delivery. I couldn’t put it down. So simple but deeply effective.
