Eric Arthur Blair (George Orwell, as most know him)

1984 and Animal Farm are quite good. I was reading some of his journals recently... he's an interesting fellow.


Have you read 'Why I write' one of his essays, very interesting.

'Fighting in Spain' is easily the best thing Orwell has ever written. I highly recommend it. And it's not fiction, either.

Curious Incident of The Dog in the Night Time - Mark Haddon

This.

Also: C.S. Lewis' "The Screwtape Letters" (about a lesser demon trying to steal someones soul and writing letters to his uncle back and forth on how to get it. Really funny.) "The Great Divorse" is another great Lewis work. (Both are Lewis' adult novels)

J.R.R. Tolkein is a great British author as well and not just for his Lord of the Rings novels.

Literature isn't just novels, get some poetry down you. I suggest Chaucer, absolutely fascinating poet. The language is fantastic.
