100 Best Novels

I’ve read 4 from the board’s list, and 18 from the readers’s. I think that says more about the board than me.  (I read 9 from the rival list.)


  1. Kevin Baker says:


    5, 22, and 9. And most of the first and last list were read as part of my education, and I would not read them again. (Joseph Conrad is almost painful to read, for example.)

  2. Vivian says:

    That so many L.Ron Hubbard books were in the Reader’s list makes me ponder who got to vote. And how many times. His books suck.

  3. Phelps says:

    There are too many Ayn Rand books too. The cultcases came out in force.
