Explanations:

sturlington (140): The problem I have with these lists is that they load up too many books by the same author. I think every single one of Hardy's novels is on this list. Read one, sure, but do you need to read them all? I'd love to see a list like this with a lot more balance showcasing different authors.… (more)
