To Kill A Mockingbird was 1960, you could try that one.
A Clockwork Orange- this one's good if you want to do an analysis on the human mind
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest

i might strongly propose Cambridge college Press for his or her selection of books for rookies of English. They pass each and every of ways with the aid of grammar, point by potential of point, with CD-roms to assist, plus books on vocabulary, idioms etc, each and every of ways from basic to stepped forward. Raymond Murphy is one among their significant authors. The self learn classes are surprising.

"Slaughterhouse-five" by Kurt Vonnegut.
"The Things They Carried" by Tim O'Brien.
"Humboldt's Gift" by Saul Bellow.
All are simply amazing.

Try Leo Tolstoy's Anne Karenina or Resurrection his writing style isn't too complicated.
