1984 by Alduous Huxley. I know it's a number instead of a word, but it works for me.
Dracula by Bram Stoker. Granddaddy of all the horror books.
Frankenstein by Mary Shelly. The first mad scientist trying to play god book.
Dune by Frank Herbert. Oh my did Frank Herbert start a franchise off of this book.
Foundation by Isaac Asimov. It started as short stories in Amazing Science Fiction magazine. It was compiled into the original three books and Asimov went on from there.
Longitude by Dava Sobel .
The development of clocks and how this led to being able to locate longitude for navigation.
Borderline by Joseph Badal. Two female detectives in Albuquerque, NM solving crimes while fending off sexual harassment and superiors second guessing their every move. First of now three books in the series.
Quantum by Patrick Cornwell. On my TBR list. Can't say too much about it yet.
This is such a great list, Patrick! I'm a huge fan of Dracula and 1984 in particular.
Thanks for stopping by earlier.
Frankenstein is one of my favourite classics. Remember liking 1984 too though it's a while since I read it.
1984 is one of my favorites. Great list!
Always a pleasure, Lydia.
Nice to know we have that in common M. T. Thanks for coming by.
Wendi, it is a good book and relevant today as it was then.
Nice list! I know some of these, but not all of them.
We had a decent amount of crossover! I've finally started the Foundation series but I'm on Prelude, can't wait to get further into the rest of the books.
Davida, I'm that way on almost all the lists on this meme.
It's not easy to get through all of them now, Jocelyn. It's amazing how well the original stands up today when he wrote them in the 30's
