Well, after months travelling almost all the time, now I can share my thoughts on this thread. Unfortunately, I have only read 26 of the 100 books. |
Which, among those 26, would I drop?
1. The Good Soldier. Definitely. I don't know, it well may be that I read it at the wrong time, though I usually don't relate my current state of mind to what I'm reading. It normally is the other way aroud: my reading inspires my mood, if anything. The fact is I hated this book and I didn't even finish it, something I seldom do.
Of all the rest, I think they deserve the place. Which ones do I think should be on the list, displacing some of the others?
1. The Witches of Eastwick. John Updike
2. King Jesus. Robert Graves
3. The Power and the Glory. Graham Greene
4. Absalom, Absalom!. William Faulkner.
