4. Romeo and Juliet

While Romeo and Juliet isn’t technically a novel, it's a classic nonetheless. If you’ve read Shakespeare’s most popular play, you know how artful and dramatic it is, but you also know how tricky the language can be.

So, to get a more comprehensive idea of the play, whether you’ve read it or not, I’d recommend watching the 1996 version of it. This movie, like the play, is somewhat of a classic. The unconventional setting places Romeo and Juliet in a 1990s suburb, but stays true to the plot and even the Elizabethan language. Like many classics, Romeo and Juliet has been remade countless times, but this version certainly redefines creativity and outshines them all!
