John Inverdale's six best books

John Inverdale, a BBC TV and radio presenter, named his six best books for the Daily Express.

One title on his list:

Another classic which is a wonderfully passionate book and is set in one of my favourite parts of the country.

I read it at school and have revisited it on several occasions since and every time I read it I get something new from a novel rightly held in such high regard.
Read about the other books on Inverdale's list.

Wuthering Heights appears on Valerie Martin's list of novels about doomed marriages, Susan Cheever's list of the five best books about obsession, and Melissa Katsoulis' top 25 list of book to film adaptations.
