Favorite "Classic"

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Who or what is your favorite classic author or book? And no, "modern classics" don't count. We're talking things written at least prior to when you were born, if not before your parents or grandparents were born. I'm not exactly the person to be starting this thread since I can rarely stand anything written before 1970, but I'm trying to expand my horizons and want to see where you peeps are coming from. I've got a bit of soft spot for Hemingway and a major crush on Steinbeck. Although I think all of Steinbeck's stuff is great, I'd have to say Of Mice and Men is my favorite. Good, quality literature.

Forgive me if I'm doubling up on a thread, but seriously, live with it.
