Sunday Snapshot: Five Marvellous Novellas

The following novellas have been wonderful, in terms of their plots, writing and characterisation. If you are a newcomer to the wonder and atmosphere which novellas pack into very few pages, you are sure to find something to delight you here.

1. Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote
Adorable, funny and filled with a marvellous protagonist, Holly Golightly.

2. Coraline by Neil Gaiman
Deliciously creepy, and just as wonderful for adults to read as it is for children.

Breakfast at Tiffany's (novella)

3. Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton
Wharton describes the bleakness of Massachusetts in the most stunning manner, and her plot is rather chilling.

4. The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery
A magical and lovely tale, which is sure to fill your head with a wealth of thoughts.

5. Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
Steinbeck has created one of the most memorable stories and two of the most memorable characters I have ever come across here.
