The Top 100 Book List....

#4
I don't read books often, nor have I read much of any that are in the top ten but...

How the feck did Catch-22 not get into the top ten!?

I'd definitely put 'Sniper One' instead of 'Birdsong' which I found very long and dull.
I thought Birdsong was DULL and didn't manage to finish it - Mills and Boon written by a bloke. But looking at the list of top 100 am amazed that so few contemporary books have made it. I hated reading Dickens, although he makes a mean TV drama, but agree that 'to kill a mockingbird' should be up there, but Harry P - come on, surely there is more to life that a wizzard's stick and a few magic mushrooms!? How about Christopher Isherwood, 'Goodbye to Berlin', Robertson Davies 'bred in the bone', Mordachai Richie 'Solomon Gursky was here', etc, etc. So many authors, so little time!
