The other day I was casually browsing through Wikipedia when I came across an article that listed the bestselling books of all time in terms of copies sold. While there were quite a few I had already read, some of the others in that list were also quite new to me. So here is my compilation of the Top 3 Books of all time along with a small brief review of each.
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
A Tale of Two Cities is the largest selling book worldwide with over 200 million copies sold ever since it was released and is a true masterpiece in my opinion. This book is set in the cities of London and Paris during the French Revolution and has a host of interesting characters that will remain etched onto your memory for years.
The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien
Everybody has seen or heard about this epic trilogy in the movie format but how many of you have actually read Tolkien’s greatest masterpiece? This amazing book series has it all; from dungeons, to hobbits to treachery to friendship and to hope!
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy has sold well over 150 million copies worldwide and is must-read in my opinion. Read this one for the original Dark Lord and his land of Mordor!
And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
Agatha Christie is among the best master storytellers of all times and there are very few others who come close to her in the mystery and detective genre. And Then There Were None was originally released under the name Ten Little Niggers and is a dark, thrilling tale of murder, deceit and treachery.
This particular book is one of her finest works to date and has sold well over 100 million copies all over the world since its launch and has been translated into over 30 languages.
The above three books belong to different genres and if you haven’t read any of them till now, then I highly suggest you do so as soon as possible. Not only are they among the most popular books of all time, each one is a literary masterpiece in itself.
So that was my list of the Top 3 Books of All Time. I’ve tried giving a brief review of each of these books but in truth, nothing compares to reading the books themselves, so go ahead and get your copy now!
