These books. THESE BOOKS. Now, I can see why everyone loves them and I am not disappointed at all. There might have been times I struggled with the writing and the pacing of the books, but their plots and depth of language were just so good that they kept me reading. I did go into these books without knowing anything and I was so surprised with the drama and all the twists and ahhh, so good. But, I would still have to say that The Outsiders will forever be my favorite classic, but The Great Gatsby is closely in second place. If you're just starting to read classics, like I am, definitely pick up The Great Gatsby. Maybe not so Sense and Sensibility because it is kind of long and the language is much more in depth.
