Just to check and see if anyone reads the older stuff around here, what's your favorite work of fiction over 50 years old?

My personal fav would have to be Beat to Quarters by C.F. Forester

* plugs The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson again

And 1984 and Animal Farm, both by George Orwell.

Is Asimov's work 50 years old yet?

*Runs to shelf to check*

Yes! Than practicaly any of Asimov's earlier works are good. Also, although it sort of goes with out saying The Lord of the Rings is good (I think it is 50 years old, at least the first part is. Did he publish Return of the King before or after 1954? It escapes me.)

I actualy really like some of Steinbeck's work as well, especialy Of Mice and Men.

Both Orwell choices are great, but I'll go with Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 (1953).

The Foundation trilogy. The later books weren't bad, but they neither have the same feel as the first three nor are 50 years old yet. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is a close second.

Asimov rocks. He is one of my favorite authors ever.

And for some reason Animal is the first person to agree with me that The Grapes of Wrath is a good book.
