For me, a lifelong appreciation of magic and adventure started with C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia, of which no book is more important than The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Quick, effortless and exciting reads. A good start before taking on Alexander, Pullman, Cooper, Tolkien and Rowling.

A partially true story of two very different lives in Victorian Britain. Bigotry, unintentional racism, class warfare and a peek into the very private life of a very public author, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
