I know this is supposed to be one of the all time best novels (and the first), but it's really long, boring, and depressing. I recommend reading Jane Austen instead. That being said, if you're interested in the history of the novel, you can't skip this one.

This is a wonderful book, was one of Jane Austen's favorites. This edition is abridged, but originally the work is about 1500 pages.
