In another thread someone was quoted as saying that classics are the books that everyone should read but no one wants to (or words to that effect.) It seems to me that while this describes, say, The Mayor of Casterbridge, there are plenty of classics that are worth reading not (or not just) because they make observations about the human condition, but because they’re genuinely entertaining. A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, The Time Machine, and a number of other novels come to mind (in fact, pretty much all the good stuff by Twain and Wells.) I could also add Dracula and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Do you have any other examples of classics that are fun to read?
