I thumbed through it and knew most of them, but couldn't help and wonder why a few others were left out.
And for me, a fan of non-fiction, there was only one. But anyway, chronologically, here's the ones on the list that I recognized, and you probably guessed most of them anyway:
- The autobiography of Benjamin Franklin
- The Last of the Mohicans
- The Scarlet Letter
- Moby Dick
- Leaves of Grass
- Little Women
- Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
- My Antonio--I'd have picked Death Comes for the Archbishop
- The Great Gatsby
- The Sun Also Rises--but what about the Old Man and The Sea?
- The Grapes of Wrath
- On The Road
- The Cat in the Hat
- To Kill a Mockingbird
Others recommended which I disagree with were North of Boston, The Weary Blues, USA, Their Eyes Were Watching God, Go Down, Moses, The Adventures of Angie Marsh, The Crying of Lot 49, Song of Solomon, Love Medicine.
But I wonder, what about Catch 22? Uncle Tom's Cabin? Gone with the Wind? A River Runs Through It? In Cold Blood? The Naked and the Dead? Look Homeward Angel? The Sound and The Fury or Absalom, Absalom? Fahrenheit 451? The Fountainhead? Blue Highways (non-fiction, thank you)?
Hey, I was an english major, but repented.
Of course, my favorite novel, Heart of Darkness, isn't on it because it's English.
