1. 'The Five People You Meet in Heaven' by Mitch Albom
It is a beautiful novel, written from the point of an old man, who dies trying to save a girl's life. Up in heaven, he meets five people who radically impacted his life, or whose life he radically impacted.
It is very easy to read; Albom's style of writing is very free flowing, and I read it in one sitting.
2. 'Peter Pan' by J.M. Barrie
This is not just a book for children; in fact, most children would have great difficulty with the language. The novel can be enjoyed at face value, but truly appreciated when you look for the deeper meanings.
3. 'Animal Farm' by George Orwell
I think it is fascinating how Orwell managed to create such a political book from the point of view of animals. His voice does not encroach on the story, and it is very objective, which is a great accomplishment, seeing how clearly he puts his political message across.
