...and, no Philip K Dick!
Gone With The Wind
Zane Grey's Riders of the Purple Sage
These two should have been on the list
And there's nothing wrong with the Left Behind series. Better than Harry Potter.
Gone With The Wind is on the list. #6.
Lots of pop 'crap'. Dan Brown, really? Thrones?
There’s a lotta really good books out there, and some of them are on that list. I’m just starting a 602 page book that wouldn’t make that list but I’m really just happy to see people reading and talking about books.
What no Necrinomicon!!! There is a vast store of books in the Miskatonic University library that were not even considered.
I like most of the choices and watched the show each week. In the end I'd put East of Eden as my #1
I suspect readers of the Necronomicon found it hard to log on and cast their votes from the ancient city of R'lyeh, trapped for eternity with the Great Old Ones.
The Necronomicon's not a novel
Where’s the irony? Personal preference is just personal preference.
Which one is your favourite? Also, the list is about novels, not plays and essays.
That's a funny question with books, because once I finish one I'm on to the next one, and I usually don't return to read one again. So my answer is always that my favorite book is the one I'm reading.
That might not be true for the people who answered this survey.
I actually do have a favourite novel: In the Skin of a Lion, by Michael Ondaatje. I've read it numerous times over the last 25 years. There are plenty of novels that I have really enjoyed, but this one really stands above the others for me.
lists like this are like those exercises you do at professional development things... the list itself is meaningless... it is just to draw people in and stoke their passions... so... I guess I think this list has been successful at that..
While in the midst of the Me Too moment, David Foster Wallace may be suffering in a different way then when he was living, his 1996 novel, "Inifite Jest" is essential reading that was scarily prescient.
I always used those "make a list" times for bathroom breaks
Not to mention; no De Vermis Mysteriis, Unaussprechlichen Kulten, or Pnakotic Manuscripts! What kind of cockamamie book list is this!
They ain't novels either. They're books of esoteric lore that will drive their readers insane.
Frankly the lack of knowledge of the Great Old Ones displayed here disappoints me.
Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn!!!
I'm assuming HRIYMIS means you haven't read it yet. Wheel Of Time would make a good movie or TV series if done right but it's 15 books so a large investment time wise. For the most part I liked it but there are three books in a row, somewhere in the 5-10 range that really drag along. But once you get through those things get interesting again
