Well, as they said, "who cares about the score." I read a lot, but have only read 4 of the ones listed.

Hardly read any of them, but to be honest that is someone else's list of great works not mine

Says I'm a literate apprentice. I have read many books but they have not included 21 of the ones mentioned. What about Dickens, RL Stevenson and many more.

I’ve read 11 of them. Not bad for someone who quit school at 15. Kind of a strange list.

jfserrano, Things Fall Apart’s author is Nigerian. But it is certainly overly American. No Dostoevsky or Camus. I’d have to include one or both of those.

You don´t know what the great novels are. Dostowike, Maughan, Joyce, were not there, and there are some shity ones.

18/25. Some of the books I haven't read won't grab my interest, but I'll put Toni Morrison on my must read list.
