I need to read more so I can add more novels to this list. Anyway, I'm in the middle of "Jude the Obscure," "The Naked and the Dead," "The Tunnel" (by Sabato) and "The Devil to Pay in the Backlands" and they will probably all make it onto the list eventually, once my lazy butt finishes them.

(not that anyone actually cares what books I think are worth reading, but...)

Nodowa, all I can say is stick with both of them. Their first twenty pages are duffer, but once they find themselves, goddamn. And come on, Hardy's good... ish. Goodish. Not Manga. But good.

m, I know, I know. I'm gonna have to read Catch and Confederacy for my comprehensive exams coming up (and reread Lolita), so I'll get back to you.
