Why don't you try something by Charles Dickens if you want to read another historical author? Or the Bronte sisters? You might also enjoy Thomas Hardy.
Thanx ^^

I'm not sure if this is exactly the type of book that you are looking for, but try Jane Austen's books. They are excellent and historically accurate. I think that they are similar to Vanity Fair, but I am not sure.
Hello JK

You might try Stendhal's 'Scarlet and Black', or Flaubert's 'Mme Bovary'.

Dostoevsky's 'Brothers Karamazov' is an interesting contrast to Tolstoy.

Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House
Kate Chopin's The Awakening
Guy de Maupassant's The Necklace
the list goes on, but the first one is a play the other two are short stories.

I've watched an onscreen rendition of Doll's House, starring Anthony Hopkins. (yes, it's pretty old)
Why not trying Mikhail Bulgakov's "Master & Margarita"...
Hi, I have just read 'Future Film Fiction' by Ian Clinton. I couldnt put it down because of its fast-paced content. There are four stories in this book, an action/sci-fi, crime drama, romantic horror, and the last one is something of an adventure/love-story. I didnt read the first one, the sci-fi, till the end, because I dont normally go for that sort of thing, but the rest of the book was so good that I wanted more. I purchased it through a link on the website, www.futurefilmfiction.com. I am trying to find out when the next volume is being released so if you find out, please let me know.

Thanks, Susan-Manchester
