Good suggestions, Philip! Both on the recommends and
the avoids.  

I'd suggest The Unknown Ajax, too.  And avoid (until
later, when you are safely addicted) Lady of Quality,
Powder and Patch, and April Lady).

There are fans who would fiercely object to any
"avoid", of course, but these are my best suggestions.
 Happy Heyering!
