"Share one book that you believe will be considered a classic in 100 years time. Simple? I do have a few caveats, the book must have been published in or after 2005 and you need to provide two reasons for why this book will be a classic."
My first choice was Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier, but sadly it was first published in 2002. So, I picked another book of hers. And for your huge surprise, I chose Heart's Blood (2009). Not a surprise at all, I know. Now, into the reasons.
1) Juliet Marillier is the Queen. Her writing is simply beautiful. At least, one of her books will have to be considered a classic in 100 years. It will be very unfair - and sad - if her amazing stories fall into oblivion.
2) Fairy-tales are part of the classics. Who doesn't know the work of the Grimm brothers? Heart's Blood is a wonderful retelling of the classic tale Beauty and the Beast. It is one of the best retellings of this generation. As fairy-tales, a fairy-tale retelling should be also considered a classic. And there is no better choice than Heart's Blood.
