I've only read 40 of the novels. It's hard for me to limit myself to ten. I'd prefer to just list the ones I particularly liked. And it's hard to rank those. I will, however, play fair and rank ten.
3. The Woman in White
5. The Master and Margarita
6. A House for Mr. Biswas
7. Life: A User's Manual
9. Jacques the Fatalist
10. Gabriela, Clove, and Cinnamon
Seems like a quirky list. I list the books I most enjoyed reading. They were fun, or they were nice stories. It was kind of a toss up for that tenth spot. I could have gone with Blindness or The Red and the Black or Jealousy or two or three others. I am fascinated by Jealousy and In the Labyrinth, but I enjoyed other books more. I suppose I think there are different ways of liking.
The most memorable character? Biswas or Humbert or the guy from Mist (I do forget his name.)
My reading with you all was my fourth reading of Persuasion and the first time I did enjoy it, but I feel like listing it now.
Gabriela is the most enjoyable book I learned of through the group. I also enjoyed The Black Tulip.
Even now, I ask myself, "Didn't I like Blindness more than Life: a User's Manual? I don't know.
