The works of H.G. Wells are well known for their prophetic ideas. The War in the Air is one of these works. Written in 1907, it presented the idea of using aircraft for the purposes of warfare. The protagonist in this story is Bert Smallways who becomes accidentally entangled in a German plot to bomb New York City from the air. As the bombardments and air warfare become more intense and destruction surrounds him, Bert faces the true horror of war ... even after it has ostensibly ended.
Therese Raquin begins an affair with a friend of her husband. Their passion is such a contrast to her dry almost loveless marriage that they plot to drown her husband. The novel caused a scandal when it was published and Zola continued to be a controversial and notorious figure.
Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog), published in 1889, is a humorous account by Jerome K. Jerome of a boating holiday on the Thames between Kingston and Oxford. The trip has been recreated many times since most recently in 2005 for the BBC. Quotes and references turn up regularly, ranging from references in Robert A. Heinlein's 1958 Have space suit will travel through to the 2006 film Pirates of the Caribbean.
