All Time Best Novels

Thanks to Wendy at Tales from the Dorkside for bringing this to our attention. The editors at Time magazine have compiled a list of what they consider the 100 greatest English language novels from 1923 to the present. Here is the whole list.

These are the ones I've read. What about you?

  • Animal Farm by George Orwell
  • The Assistant by Bernard Malamud
  • The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
  • The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
  • The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
  • The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
  • Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
  • Lord of the Flies by William Golding
  • The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
  • The Moviegoer by Walker Percy
  • 1984 by George Orwell
  • The Power and the Glory by Graham Greene
  • Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut
  • The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway
  • To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
I number 15. Should be more, I suppose, but I can't help thinking of all the great books not on their list too.

Alas, only 12. What an uncultured philistine I must be.

I have always wanted to read The Moviegoer. Is it really good?
