They missed the biggest selling fantasy book of all time.
The main character is inconsistently written and often repulsive, it purports to be a tome of morality but comes across as a filibuster, and it is boring and long. The sort of thing that you would read either as a masochist, or for a bet.
So, not unlike Atlas Shrugged
Anyway, I voted. I was pissed to see a complete lack of Doctor Who
novels, but duly voted not only for two of my favourite Discworld novels (Small Gods
and Going Postal
), but for the Dune Chronicles, the Vorkosigan Saga, House of Leaves, American Gods, The Gone-Away World, Solaris, The Stand
, and Watchmen
Pity you can only vote for 10, I wanted to add The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, A Clockwork Orange
, The Dark Tower series, Frankenstein, Neuromancer
, the Otherland series, The Princess Bride, A Scanner Darkly, The Stars My Destination, The Lord of the Rings, World War Z
and Nineteen Eighty-Four
Four minutes? That's ages! What if I get bored? I need a television, a couple of books. Anyone for chess? Bring me knitting.
