For example, I love "A Christmas Carol" so much that I read it out of season, can probably recite large chunks, and get rabidly angry at any film adaptation that isn't true to the book. Also love "A Tale of Two Cities." But that may be, in part, due to Ronald Colman as Sydney Carton...even though that adaptation isn't true to the book, it's the reason I read it.
But the rest...I've read them mainly because I felt I should, but none really stuck with me.
At the moment, I need to re-read "Oliver Twist."

It is my solemn duty to point out this fic every time anyone mentions Carton and Grantaire being similar -- the crossover has been done, and done well.
(Amy is still one of my very favourite LM fic writers even though she hasn't written anything in probably 7 years, that I know of.)
