To Kill a Mockingbird, currently. Alice in Wonderland was enjoyably trippy.

Wow I enjoyed all these books, but I must say my favourite classics are mostly by Shakespeare, Austin and Dickens...and not just because I'm quite patriotic lol

That's a good question. Here is a top 5 (in no order):
1. Mother Night by Vonnegut
2. The Picture of Dorian Grey by Grey
3. Down and Out in Paris and London by Orwell
4. Brave New World by Huxley
5. Lord of the Flies by Golding

They have a lot of things in common, but I like them because they are the most insightful and entertaining.
