I enjoyed this video very much. I think it's really interesting what you believe makes a good autumn read. Personally, however, I'm not much into relating what I read with the seasons. Something about me, though not entirely necessary to say, is that I'm very interested in Russian literature, and I particularly liked your videos on how to read Crime and Punishment and Anna Karenina. But that's going way off topic from this video lol. Anyways, love your insight into literature; it's always a pleasure for me to watch your videos!

Layer Slayer says:

Could you please cover the book infinite jest?

I just started The Overstory by Richard Powers. It's lovely. Very nostalgic. This man in the 1800's moves west across America and plants some chestnuts collected from his home in the eastern U.S. One survives and at a point he begins photographing it every month from the same vantage point, for years and years, as his family farms the land. He imparts his love of this tree and photographing it monthly to his kids and then grandkids. One of the grandchildren likes flipping through the photos and seeing the tree stand through season after season, as a kind of time lapse old movie. We have giant sequoias here in northern California that are up to 3 thousand years old and with the heating climate are burning down in unprecedented numbers. It makes you go quiet pondering these magnificent stationary silent things witnessing our noisy comings and goings. But I also want to read or reread your classics list, just not in book form because of trees right now. Joking?

SuS Prime says:

Some fine recommendations but not up to Middlemarch or Persuasion again. I am reading Gaskell and plan on reading Anthony Trollope, both neglected by the earlier me, except I did read North and South in the long ago.

Leila Stackleather says:

I'm a new subscriber. So happy I stumbled across your beautiful channel. Thank you so much for the recommendations. I want to read them all. Namaste.

Elizabeth Murphy says:

Ah Benjamin, wise beyond your years. Since I am in the Autumn of my life, these recommendations are both reminiscent, as well as needed refreshers. This is the perfect weather for such atmospheric literature. Of course, any person who highly recommends Les Miserables, has a special place in my literature heart. All such lovely, moody recommendations. Cheers to you!

MaeryxTG says:

I usually don't mach my readings with the seasons, my mood is the only guide I follow, but I absolutely can't read christmas books outside christmas time. Anyway, I'm reading The Brothers Karamazov and it seems perfect for the autumnal vibes. Next on my tbr are North and South, Far from the madding crowd, The Mysteries of Udolpho, Bleak House, Othello and maybe some Cechov… Happy reading!

Ayman Mahbub says:

What about the heart of darkness?

Jeff says:

Hi Ben!! Yes, the nostalgia factor is a must, and a gloominess. Poe makes perfect sense. Things that are dark and depressing, the phase i'm in now which feels like it will be like this for awhile is for the disturbing stuff, for testing the limits, looking in the abyss of human nature, a bit of a true crime aspect, at least with the one i recently finished Ketchum's The Girl Next Door, what a well written story that will crush your soul! Have a wonderful Autumnal reading time.

Mina Carrabba says:

I really agree with the Hardy recommendations; recently finished Far From the Madding Crowd, it was beautiful and a perfect introduction to autumn! I am currently about to take the journey into Anna Karenina and I can’t wait to experience it for the first time especially coming into the autumn season I think it will be truly amazing. Great recommendations Ben!

Marvin Beltre says:

Ordered Frankenstein!

John Barry says:

Stoner by John Williams and Turgenev's Sportsman's Notebook are my Autumn staples!

Michael Engleking Jr. says:

I enjoyed this video and it gives me the desire to read such books as you suggested. I’m just surprised you didn’t mention John Keats. Keats’ melancholic spirit, considering he had tuberculosis, charges his poetry with a sense of mortality that makes him perfect for Autumn, especially his 1819 Odes. I think of Ode to Melancholy, Ode to Indolence, and To Autumn. Keats is a perfect pairing for this time of year.

thelaurels13 says:

Great video, Ben. Thank you for the recommendations. I definitely need to familiarise myself with Thomas Hardy’s work. I am currently reading The Hound of the Baskervilles, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Would that count as a good autumn read?
