TIME's List of the 100 Greatest Novels

Another list.


The fun part is just making sure you've read an acceptable number of them.

Most readers will have their numbers padded a little by the inclusion of William Gibson's Neuromancer.

Okay, well-written, kinda-sorta created a subgenre of light fiction... but one of the 100 novels best of all time? One of the best 100 Sci-Fi Novels, most likely. But just one of the plain-old best novels?

I don't know. I think these lists try to throw in surprise entries just to make them interesting.

I have a question: How many people have actually finished Gravity's Rainbow? Is it worth it? Because the first 100 pages are a hard slog, and there's another 700 after that.
