想读英文原版小说?

可是英文不好看不懂?

读英文书太慢难以坚持?

你有救啦!


今天给大家推荐几本

又简单又有趣的英文小说

读原版

从这里开始吧!


排名按照阅读难度从易到难:

1.Dairy of a Wimpy Kid

《小屁孩日记》

Being a kid can really stink. And no one knows this better than Greg Heffley, who finds himself thrust into middle school, where undersized weaklings share the hallways with kids are taller, meaner, and already shaving.

In Diary of a Wimpy Kid, author and illustrator Jeff Kinney introduces us to an unlikely hero. As Greg says in his diary: Just don't expect me to be all "Dear Diary" this and "Dear Diary" that.


讲道理是一套卡通书。作者是一个成年儿童用卡通+蠢萌的字体记录的日常。07年出版,畅销江湖近十年。
可以学到简单又地道的实用词汇。也是一套能够了解文化差异的好书。
比起小孩,更加适合大人。毕竟大人比小孩更加需要好玩的书籍。

推荐理由:语言风格日常、幽默、有趣;萌萌的卡通书


适合人群:英文初学者(小学生水平就OK~)


画风是这样的:


2.Mary, Queen of Scots 

苏格兰玛丽女王》


She was the quintessential queen: statuesque, regal, dazzlingly beautiful. Her royal birth gave her claim to the thrones of two nations; her marriage to the young French dauphin promised to place a third glorious crown on her noble head.

Instead, Mary Stuart became the victim of her own impulsive heart, scandalizing her world with a foolish passion that would lead to abduction, rape and even murder. Betrayed by those she most trusted, she would be lured into a deadly game of power, only to lose to her envious and unforgiving cousin, Elizabeth I. 

Here is her story, a queen who lost a throne for love, a monarch pampered and adored even as she was led to her beheading, the unforgettable woman who became a legend for all time.



这是阿姨在爱丁堡儿童博物馆里淘来的。为什么呢。因为我是儿童啊。
儿童向的书有一个好处,就是语言简单又地道。这本书对于学习和了解苏格兰历史是非常好的入门书籍。毕竟百万不想看《英国概况》。
虽然是原版书,但是初中毕业的词汇量就可以看懂。(我们的初中不是英国初中啦)

推荐理由:文化向;实在看不懂也可以靠插图猜出个456

适合人群:对苏格兰历史感兴趣的小票 


最主要是它非常的薄,一晚上就看完了,喜欢还可以多看几遍~~


3.A Street Cat Named Bob

一个叫鲍勃的流浪猫》

    A Street Cat Named Bob is an international sensation, landing on the bestseller list in England for 52 consecutive weeks and selling in 26 countries around the world. Now, James and Bob are ready to share their true story with the U.S. in this tale unlike any you’ve ever read of a cat who possesses some kind of magic.

When street musician James Bowen found an injured cat curled up in the hallway of his apartment building, he had no idea how much his life was about to change. James was living hand to mouth on the streets of London, barely making enough money to feed himself, and the last thing he needed was a pet. Yet James couldn't resist helping the strikingly intelligent but very sick animal, whom he named Bob. He slowly nursed Bob back to health and then sent the cat on his way, imagining that he would never see him again. But Bob had other ideas.

Perfect for fans of Marley & Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog and Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat That Changed the World, this instant classic about the power of love between man and animal has taken the world by storm and is guaranteed to be a huge hit with American fans as well.


    James Bowen是位在街头流浪的艺人,微薄的收入和被社会边缘化的身分让他连养活自己都很困难,根本没有能力再饲养一只猫。可是有一天,当James疲累地返回简陋的居所时,竟然发现一只受伤的流浪猫蜷曲在他的家门前。
  
  他深深的被这只猫咪吸引,并为猫咪取名为Bob,把身上仅剩的钱全花在治疗Bob上面,慢慢照顾他直到恢复健康。Bob康复之后,James想让他恢复自由,并做好永远都不会再见到Bob的心理准备,但Bob显然有自己的想法,而且非常聪明,聪明到James发现自己竟然离不开Bob了。
  
  Bob用不可思议的影响力让James再次感受到社会温暖的一面,和Bob的这场邂逅不但让James寻回遗失已久的亲情,更从此改变了他的人生。


推荐理由:暖心&励志;睡前读物;猫奴专用

适合人群:具有大学英语四级或相当水平的猫奴


再来欣赏下作者和Bob的日常吧!



4.The Wizard of OZ

《绿野仙踪》


One of the greatest American novels and a popular culture sensation, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz depicts the adventures of the young Dorothy Gale, who is swept away from her colorless farm home in Kansas by a cyclone, and winds up in the magical Land of Oz. Trapped in an unknown land, Dorothy must find a way back home and subsequently embarks on an adventure and meets a group of colorful characters along the way. Serving as an inspiration throughout generations, the children’s novel has been represented through various cinema adaptations and musicals.


《绿野仙踪》是美国作家弗兰克·鲍姆的代表作,同名系列童话故事的第一部,按照原名直译为《奥兹国的魔术师》,中国国内一般翻译为《绿野仙踪》。

《绿野仙踪》讲述了一个孩子如何去认识世界和与人相处,教会个体如何在群体社会中认识自已,获得“身份感”的故事。


推荐理由:风格可爱,重复性高(查过的单词后面多次出现就背下来了),趣味性强

适合人群:具有大学英语四级或相当水平的小伙伴


5.Little Prince? 

《小王子》

The little prince's home asteroid, or "planet", only the size of a house, has three volcanoes (two active, and one dormant) and a rose, among various other objects. The Prince spends his days caring for the asteroid, pulling out the baobab trees that are constantly trying to take root there. The Prince falls in love with the rose, who appears not to return his love due to her vain nature. The Prince loses his trust in the rose after she lies to him, and he grows lonely...

小王子是一个超凡脱俗的仙童,他住在一颗只比他大一丁点儿的小行星上。陪伴他的是一朵他非常喜爱的小玫瑰花。但玫瑰花的虚荣心伤害了小王子对她的感情。小王子告别小行星,开始了遨游太空的旅行。他先后访问了六个行星,各种见闻使他陷入忧伤,他感到大人们荒唐可笑、太不正常。在地理学家的指点下,孤单的小王子来到人类居住的地球...

推荐理由:是一部写给大人的童话,是一则关于爱与责任的寓言。《小王子》从一个孩子的视角,去看成人的空虚、盲目和愚妄,用一个孩子天真的语言写出人类的孤独寂寞,没有根四处飘流的命运。小说表达了对于真善美的讴歌。

适合人群:具有大学英语六级或相当水平的小伙伴
