1.War and Peace

Written by Leo Tolstoy, this book is regarded as the best American book of all time. It revolved around Napolean's invasion of Russia in early 19th century and is followed by three of the most well-known characters in literature: Pierre Bezukhov, the illegitimate son of a count who fights for his inheritance and longs for spiritual fulfillment; Prince Andrei Bolkonsky, who leaves his family to fight in the war against Napoleon; and Natasha Rostov, the beautiful young daughter of a nobleman who intrigues both men.

As Napoleon 's army invades, Tolstoy brilliantly follows characters from diverse backgrounds — farmers and nobles, civilians, and soldiers -as they struggle with the unique issues of their era, their history, and their culture.


A George Orwell book published in the year 1949, it is a dystopian novel Thematically, it focuses on the consequences of government over-reach, totalitarianism, mass surveillance, and repressive regimentation of all individuals and behaviors within society.

The story takes place in an imagined future when much of the world has become a victim of perpetual war, government surveillance, historical negation, and propaganda. The United Kingdom, known as Airstrip One, has become a province of a totalitarian super state called Oceania, governed by a party that employs the thought Police to persecute individuality.

3.The God of Small Things

This is a debut novel written by an Indian writer- Arundhati Roy.
The events are revealed in a split fashion, most of them jumping between the scenes of 1969 and 1993 and the background is spread all over. The story is about Ayemenem, a town in Kerala, India, the wealthy, landowner Christian Ipe of Syria.

Most of this story was in 1969, which centered on the seven-year-old Estha and Rahel Twins, who lived with Ammu their mum, Mammachi their grandma, Chacko 's uncle, and Kochamma 's grand-aunt.

4.Midnight’s Children

Written by the legendary writer Salman Rushdie, throughout the wake of the liberation of an Indian English book, children from Midnight were referred to as "a milestone" in the way that, ten years after their publication in 1981, they were referred to as "post-Rushdies."

It includes the comic, the tragic, the real, the surreal, the mythical and cannot be classified as a particular genre. The postcolonial reality is no more than any single political party that may serve all the citizens of the Nation than a West or a Western, public, or private Polarity or solidarity. A must-read for all those who love the art of storytelling through the lens of freedom struggle movement!

5.Song of Ice and Fire
