Classics That Don't Read Like Classics (For Teens)

JuliaGrace
The list author says: "Let's be honest. We all want to be that pretentious person who walks around with Jane Eyre and goes on about the beauty of Hemingway's writing. Unfortunately, classics, to be frank, can be boring. So here are a few intellectual reads that won't put you to sleep."
Franny and Zooey
Franny and Zooey
"The first book I read by Salinger, this novel is quite possibly flawless.  The characters are interesting and their thoughts are captivating.  A must read."
The Bell Jar
The Bell Jar
"About a woman who slowly goes insane, The Bell Jar is truly interesting and still widely praised by critics."
To Kill a Mockingbird: 50th Anniversary Edition
To Kill a Mockingbird: 50th Anniversary Edition
"Absolute and utter perfection.  And written through the eyes of an eight year old.  This is a quick, entertaining read."
Animal Farm: Centennial Edition
Animal Farm: Centennial Edition
"A cautionary tale about the evils of society, but masked in the environment of a farm.  Though the language can be intimidating at times, Animal Farm is thin enough that you can manage to power through it in about a day."
Brave New World
Brave New World
"Another take on where society might be heading."
Lord of the Flies
Lord of the Flies
"When a group of small boys is marooned on an island after a plane crash, their sense of right and wrong quickly collapses.  And, spoiler, they start killing each other.  Doesn't THAT sound interesting?"
