Top 5 Cult Classics
Classic Cult novels, that’s a huge genre to try and pick a definitive list from, not least because I am limited by my own reading experience and that what is cult changes around the world. So I will start by saying I am British and I have a particular penchant for attempting novels that are known as ‘cult classics’. I say attempted because I don’t get through them all, more about that in the end.
So what describes a ‘cult novel’, well cult books are born in lots of ways, the critics will hate it and the fans will love it, or both will love it but a small section of fans will read more into it. It could be that it’s become popular with a small group in a nerdy kind of way, or just that it’s particularly shocking in content and has possibly come under the eye of the censors.
