Listyboy's 100 Great Novels

My tastes are pretty eclectic, but you'll find a lot of science fiction and classics on this list. I've read everything here, and most are books I've adored, but some I can hardly remember (Great Gatsby, for one). But I figure if I struggled through all of Moby Dick or Ulysses, and other 'classics, that gives me bragging rights to put them here. It's mostly novels, but there is one play and one short story collection. I'd heartily recommend most, but some are here for sentimental reasons, and are definitely not examples of good writing (Heinlein's Time Enough For Love, for one). You have been warned. Thanks for doing my list! I had fun compiling it.
