If you find yourself with a little time on your hands and need a recommendation for some good fiction to read, I have a few suggestions. None are written for just a Catholic audience, but all have deep spiritual meaning:
**The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky. I have never read another novel as good as this one. Top of my list.
**The Power and the Glory by Graham Greene. Set in Mexico during the government persecution of the Catholic Church. A priest who finds meaning in losing himself in fear.
**Death Comes for the Archbishop by Willa Cather. Nobody paints a picture in your mind's eye like Cather.
**Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. Written decades ago, it describes a frightening future, that in many ways we are living out as foretold by Huxley.
**Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe. Classic novel which helped turn hearts against slavery.
**1984 by George Orwell. Another great futuristic tale.
**Catch-22 by Joseph Heller. Yet another.
**Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe. A great story of how faith can sustain us.
**The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo. Classic French literature.
**The Moviegoer by Walker Percy. A desperate story of needing to find meaning
