The Mango Bride by Marivi Soliven

1984 by George Orwell
Distributed in 1949, the book offers political humorist George Orwell’s bad dream vision of a totalitarian, bureaucratic world and one poor firm’s endeavor to discover distinction. The splendor of the novel is Orwell’s foreknowledge of present day life- – the omnipresence of TV, the bending of the dialect – and his capacity to develop such a careful rendition of damnation. Required perusing for understudies since it was distributed, it positions among the unnerving books ever composed.
Lord of the Flies by William Golding
At the point when a plane crashes on a remote island, a little group of schoolboys is the sole survivor. From the prophetic Simon and idealistic Ralph to the adorable Piggy and brutish Jack, each of the young men endeavors to build up control as the truth – and ruthless viciousness – of their circumstance sets in.
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
The compelling story of two outsiders striving to find their place in an unforgiving world. Drifters in search of work, George and his simple-minded friend Lennie have nothing in the world except each other and a dream–a dream that one day they will have some land of their own. Eventually, they find work on a ranch in California’s Salinas Valley, but their hopes are doomed as Lennie, struggling against extreme cruelty, misunderstanding, and feelings of jealousy, becomes a victim of his own strength.
Dekada ’70 by Lualhati Bautista
Unquestionably a political novel. More than the individual story of a mother watching her children develop and dive into the genuine living, Dekada ’70 is an arraignment of martial law, and here, Lualhati minces no words.
I Am Malala by Christina Lamb and Malala Yousafzai
At the point when the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one young lady stood up. Malala Yousafzai declined to be quieted and battled for her entitlement to an instruction. I Am Malala is the exceptional story of a family removed by worldwide psychological warfare, of the battle for young ladies’ training, of a father who, himself a school proprietor, championed and urged his little girl to compose and go to class, and of overcome guardians who have a savage love for their little girl in a general public that prizes children.
Animal Farm by George Orwell
One night on an English ranch, Major the pig describes his vision of an ideal world where his kindred animals claim the land alongside the method for creation and are no more the slaves of people. A little while later his fantasy materializes, and for a brief span, all creatures truly are equivalent. Be that as it may, the astute pigs instruct themselves and soon figure out how to augment their own energy, unavoidably to the detriment of whatever remains of the group. This very much adored story is, obviously, a parody on the Soviet Communist framework that still remains an intense cautioning in spite of the adjustments in world governmental issues since “Animal Farm” was initially distributed.
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Moral purposeful anecdote and otherworldly collection of memoirs, The Little Prince is the most deciphered book in the French dialect. With an ageless appeal, it recounts the account of a young man who leaves the security of his own little planet to venture to every part of the universe, taking in the fancies of grown-up conduct through a progression of phenomenal experiences. His own odyssey comes full circle in a voyage to Earth and further enterprises.
