MY FAVOURITE SIX BOOKS OF ALL TIME
Here we are on a quiet afternoon at the end of August, I just thought about my favourite books of all time – these are books that I loved from the very start of reading them, books that I have read again and sometimes again, going back to when I was about eight and took reading seriously. (From that moment when I first read The Three Musketeers, I decided I wanted to write novels.)
Here is my collection of favourite six books of all time – but oh, how meaningless, really, a self-indulgent exercise, that satisfies no one. Nevertheless, these books live close to my heart, go everywhere with me – see how battered they are – perhaps I shall get new copies sometime.
The Three Musketeers Alexandre Dumas
Great Expectations Charles Dickens
The Game of Kings Dorothy Dunnett
The Magus John Fowles
The Source James A. Mitchener
Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy John le Carre
