If you are an avid reader but you’re always extremely busy, I must tell you that there are quite a few brilliant short books that anyone can find the time to read.

You can try finding solace in the wonderful world of novellas, since this narrative form usually consists of around 80 to 150 pages and they demand far less time than a novel.

Here are 9 amazing short books that will mesmerize you and that you won’t be able to put down until you finish reading them:

1. Animal Farm – George Orwell

Animal Farm – George Orwell

In my opinion, this is definitely one of the most brilliant short books ever written!

It’s a classical satire of the Russian Revolution and it describes a democratic society built on the belief that everyone is equal - in this case, all the animals.

You can even say that this book describes the essence of politics for every age, and that’s why it’s a must-read in my opinion.

2. The Call of the Wild – Jack London

The Call of the Wild – Jack London

This is another classic short book everyone should read.

It tells the story of Buck, a domesticated dog that gets stolen from his master.

Buck gets shipped to the Arctic to live among other sled dogs, and has to leave his domesticated life behind in order to embrace the wild.

It’s a very good book to read and I recommend it for any age.

3. Three Tales – Gustave Flaubert

Three Tales – Gustave Flaubert

Gustave Flaubert, a French novelist, is considered to be a master of style who was devoted to finding the right word in every masterpiece he created.

Even though his most notable creation is Madame Bovary, he also has a wonderful collection of short stories and this edition includes: β€œA Simple Heart,” β€œThe Legend of Saint Julian the Hospitator,” and β€œHerodias.”
