Fiction: My Top 40 Favourite

This is a list of my top 40 favourite books. That is my favourite fiction. I will do another list of my favourite non-fiction and my favourite plays and poetry at a later date. All of these books had an impact on me in some way. It may have been for the simple pleasure of reading them, I may have thought them the best I had read on a particular subject, they may have influenced the way I see the world or I may have liked how the words flow. The why isn’t really important. Put simply, these books are the ones I would rescue from a fire first!

Although I read voraciously, and I have read a lot of books, there are still thousands of books waiting out there for me to read. I am sure I am missing some which will probably make the list after I read them LOL Don't argue with me for something I included that you think is substandard, but I would like to hear what you would include instead! And if you have any of these on your own list.
