Another list to mull over or simply ignore, this time voted for by 60,000 people:-

Lots of series. The actual number of books is probably somewhere between two and three hundred individual titles.

Nice to see Neil Gaiman on there three times but surprised Joe Abercrombie isn't mentioned and absolutely miffed that I'm not there either... hmmff!

I would have liked to have seen Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell higher than that - I loved that book.

Did anyone else find themselves ticking a mental list of those they've read and those they should have but still haven't found the time to yet?

Hmm, top 10s or 20s can sometimes make a bit of sense, but listings for a top 100 are just silly and arbitrary...

I mean, Banks' CULTURE series, and KSR's MARS trilogy stuck down in the bottom quarter, with Vernor Vinge's A FIRE UPON THE DEEP rated below a Star Wars spin-off that I've never heard of!
:o :lol:

Oh, and let's not even start wondering how the hell anything by Orson Scott Card rates above the likes of Clarke, Asimov, and Ray Bradbury's best.
:roll:

I'll say. You might as well cut it down to:

The Great Books of All Time

1. Those with pictures.
2. Those without pictures.

Bit odd how all the Culture books are all listed as one series, and the Discworld books aren't...
