Re: 50 Books to Read Before You Die

Asterisks mark the books I've read. Those I liked best are in blue.

I've also corrected some typos, like "The Quiet (not "Quite") American" and Jack Kerouac.
  • The Lord of the Rings Trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien*
  • 1984 by George Orwell*
  • Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen*
  • The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck*
  • To Kill A Mocking Bird by Harper Lee*
  • Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte*
  • Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte*
  • A Passage to India by E.M. Forster
  • Lord of the Flies by William Golding
  • Hamlet by William Shakespeare*
  • A Bend in the River by V.S. Naipaul*
  • The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fritzgerald*
  • The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger*
  • The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
  • Brave New World by Aldous Huxley*
  • The Diary of Anne Frank by Anne Frank *
  • Don Quixote by Miguel De Cervantes *
  • The Bible by Various (just read parts of this)
  • The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer
  • Ulysses by James Joyce
  • The Quiet American by Graham Greene*
  • Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks
  • Money by Martin Amis
  • The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling*
  • Moby Dick by Herman Melville
  • The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame*
  • His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman
  • Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy*
  • Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol*
  • Rebecca by Daphine du Maurier*
  • The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon
  • On the Road by Jack Kerouac
  • Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
  • The Way We Live Now by Anthony Trollope
  • The Outsider by Albert Camus
  • The Colour Purple by Alice Walker
  • Life of Pi by Yann Martel
  • Frankenstein by Mary Shelley *
  • The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells
  • Man Without Women by Ernest Hemingway
  • Gulliver's Travels by Johnathan Swift*
  • A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens*
  • Huckelberry Finn by Mark Twain
  • Robbison Crusoe by Daniel Defoe*
  • One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey
  • Catch 22 by Joseph Heller
  • The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas *
  • Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
  • The Divine Comedy by Alighieri Dante
  • The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde*

I wonder why "The Count of Monte Cristo is listed, but not "The Three Musketeers" and its two sequels?

I would also recommend some other books but I guess that should go into a different thread.
