Top 10 Bengali Books or Novels of all time:
Sesher Kobita/The Last Poem By R.N.Tagore
The First book of my Top 10 Bengali Books or Novels of all time list is Tagore’s ‘The Last Poem’, which is a real treat to read. He wrote this novel at the later stage of his life but the rhythm is as usual and which is always reflected from his writings. It’s a love story between Amit and Lavanya. The plot had been sketched in the beautiful hill station of Shillong. As per I’m concerned, it’s the best among the Top 10 Bengali Books or Novels of all time.

Pather Pachali/The Song of the road By Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay

Feluda Samagra by Satyajit Roy
My 3rd preference in my Top 10 Bengali Books or Novels of all time list, would be Feluda Samagra. If west has Sherlock, we proudly have our Felu. Every Bengalee teenager wants a big brother, a guardian and a guide like Feluda. Though, he owns a revolver, his most powerful weapon is his ‘Magojastro’.

Srikanta By Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay
Srikanta, the narrator, is an aimless drifter, a passive spectator who cannot survive without the support of an individual stronger than himself. As a child, he idealizes the chaste Annada Didi—the epitome of selfless devotion to a worthless husband… As a young man he travels to Burma looking for new experiences and meets the rebellious Abhaya—who rejects her violent, bigamous husband to live openly with her lover—and learns to question the hypocritical social norms that bind a woman down but let a man off.

Putul Nacher Itikatha by Manik Bandopadhyay
In a rural backdrop, Putul Nacher Itikatha, represents the hypocrisy and intricacy of the individuals. Unlike the contemporary narratives, centering society as the protagonist, Putul Nacher Itikatha principally concerns about the individuals living in the society, who has contaminated the abstract society, with their duplicity and darkness of mind. The pettiness and dejection of existence in the village context is the principal idea of which the novel is concerned about. Whenever you talk about Top 10 Bengali Books or Novels of all time, this is automatically going to be added.
