Help with summer reading project (what book to choose)?!?!?
I have to do a summer reading project. The book has to have at least 175 pages. Can't have a movie version of it. And has to be written by a contemporary or classic British author.
Roald Dahl (no children’s books)
V. S. Naipaul
Anne, Charlotte, or Emily Bronte
Joseph Conrad (no Heart of Darkness)
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
George Orwell (not Animal Farm)
What are some interesting books that meet these standards?! 10 points! Thanks!

On a more contemporary note, Douglas Adams is fairly easy to read and hilarious to boot. I would highly recommend anything by him because it would take a very special person to find his writing dull.
Terry Pratchett is also a contemporary British author who is very funny, with dozens of fantasy novels to choose from to cater to your taste, be it for mystery, suspense, drama, whatever. They've also got hidden depths to them that you can explore - he often explores humanist themes in his writing that will give you plenty to write about for your project. Even if you don't use them for your project, you should definitely read them as they are absolutely fantastic.

Additional - I must factor out, the creator founded this booklet on his possess studies as a youngster on an Indian Reservation, then of residing of the Reservation however attending prime university on the neighborhood 'white' university. You do not a lot more useful than what this men writes approximately!

I always enjoyed books by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H.G. Wells, and E.M. Forster, but I'm a 61 year old male American, so your tastes may be different from mine.
