SFF1928-1973 (0): The very premise that everyone should read 1000 novels is faulty. What about illiterates who die in infancy?

aulsmith (0): Tolkien can be interesting or a slog. If you don't like it, don't read it/

Score: 173.59

Explanations:

0wllight (0): An okay book, and wonderful for children. A must read for adults? No, thank you. Longer than it needs to be and not really particularly interesting.

aulsmith (0): Over written. You can read about the magic education of the lost prince in Sword in the Stone in a seventh of the time.

sturlington (73): Not a must-read unless you are 12.

Score: 152.18

Explanations:

sturlington (150): 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)

Explanations:

aulsmith (0): Not a must read. Probably too sexist for current readers.

elkiedee (49): No such thing in a way as a book everyone has to read or like, but this is a list put together by a specific group of journalists and it's their opinion. And if I were making a reading list on 20th century crime fiction I would include this for its influence on many who read it, whether they directly imitated it as a whole or took some aspects or set out to write something very different.… (more)
