1.Swami and Friends by R.K.Narayan :- Swami a small town boy who is known to play mischief with all humour.
2.Yajnaseni by Pratibha Roy :- Character of Draupadi bought out by the author and how she voices her opinions.
3.Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens :- Oliver with his trembling hands in great fear asks for more reveals his boldness to speak up for himself.
4.Fifty Famous people by James Baldwin:-All the fifty short stories had some interesting personalities.
5.Ulysses Cyclops by James Joyce:-Ulysses who is the hero with a magical power in him, fights against all odds
6.The Little Mermaid by Hans Anderson :- Little mermaid saves the prince's life from the storm and never waits for him to thank her back though she was in love with the prince. Attitude of doing things with a sense of duty and not obsession.
7.Avarna by Byrappa:- Kannada novel which means act of hiding the truth. The character of Lakshmi who is the daughter of a landlord is very well visualized.
8.Blow your House Down by Pat Barker :- Jean who takes intelligently takes revenge of the serial killer.
