Four Classics to read this Autumn

War and Peace
"Whether you saw the BBC's sumptuous dramatization or not, the book is awesomely good - and widely regarded as one of the world's greatest novels."

War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy

The Diary of a Nobody
"This portrait of the marvellously pompous Mr Pooter, his family and friends originally appeared in Punch Magazine in Edwardian times, but a century or more on is still brilliant - by turns funny, poignant and fascinating."

The Diary Of A Nobody by George and Weedon Grossmith

Cold Comfort Farm
"An utterly hilarious portrait of rural England in the early part of the last century. If you haven't read it you've a treat in store."

Cold Comfort Farm by Stella Gibbons

The Life and Opinions of Tristam Shandy
"One of the great comic novels and massively influential on generations of writers who followed."

The Life And Opnions Of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman by Laurence Sterne
