How many of these have you read?

Time Mag ordains the 100 Best English Language Novels since 1923 (when Time was launched.)

I count a mere fifteen, some of which were school reading assignments.

I was surprised, yet pleased, to see one of my favorites, Snow Crash, included. Weirdly, there are two cyberpunk novels on the list, Snow Crash and Neuromancer.

What do you think the weirdest omission is?

I had read only 16, but this has inspired my next trip to the library. Happy to see one of Margaret Atwood's pieces on there, but if you are to put The Blind Assassin, why not The Handmaid's Tale?

Surprised to not see The God of Small Things. Most who read it are inspired/wowed/changed/thoughtful.

I read 18.5 of these. I'm counting one of them as "half-read".

I was assigned to read "The Sound and the Fury" for a lit class in college but could not force mysefl to slog my way through it - so I used "Cliff Notes" to write my paper on it.
