A few literature lovers at our high school have decided to form our own exclusive book club. Because our English curriculum is disappointingly poor in promoting reading other books (and because curriculums only feature one book, maybe two, per segment), most of us in this book club are sadly under-read.
That's where I need the help of our LitNation.
I need book recommendations, preferably fiction, not because we're fiction buffs but because any attempt to even nominate philosophical or well-written non-fiction has already been blocked by our 5 members (outvoted 4-1). I do ask, be varied in our recommendations. We're not doing a hitlist on the classics although classics will invariably be chosen. Likewise, we're not strictly confined to one time period or author.
I know this is much to ask as is, but, if I may ask for one more piece of information; what made it relevant. Not necessarily an in-depth synopsis of the work, but what stood out. Much thanks and appreciation to any and all responses.
