Classic novels you could almost read in an afternoon

From Heathcliff to Bovary to Becky Sharp there is a classic for everyone.  I’ve found 10 classic novels you could almost read in an afternoon, all are great reads which have endured the test of time and enchanted and entertained readers for decades.  

Christmas Carol Charles Dickens
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland Lewis Carroll 
Animal Farm George Orwell
Around the World in Eighty Days Jules Verne
Brave New World Aldous Huxley
The Catcher in the Rye J. D. Salinger
Fahrenheit 451 Ray Bradbury
FrankensteinMary Shelley
The Great Gatsby F. Scott Fitzgerald

I hope you find time to enjoy a classic, many offer a wonderful insight to what life was like when written,  and whether it be a book on adventure, war, or manners, there is so much to learn about life’s great questions from these afternoon gems.
