The Best Novels of All Time in the English Language Part B

This is the 2nd part of a challenge based on a list compiled by controversial polymath Piero Scaruffi. Follow the link to Part A. Go to "https://www.scaruffi.com/service/about.html" for a biography of Scaruffi.
All these books are rated 1+, with works by the same author usually clustered together.
It is pleasing to see so much literature in English from Australia, New Zealand, African nations, Caribbean countries and India.
