Needless to say, I disagree with some on this list sent by Chuckles.
For a start, you can throw off the Virginia Woolfe guff and put on maybe the Brontes. Woolfe was a feminazi, so she has no place there.
There are so many great novels not on that list either but that’s to be expected as it’s the Guardian:
In my opinion many of the Guardian books do not even reach second rate. To Kill a Mockingbird is a pastiche of caricatures, it is not by coincidence that it is mostly read by 5th graders.
Oh yeah. That’s the stuff.
In all seriousness though, which are your top five? That’s a tough call.…
