200 Greatest Novels of All Time

Many lists of top-ranked novels have been published over the years, with remarkable inconsistency. In fact, of the fifteen published lists we used to create our composite ranking, not a single novel was listed among the top 100 on every list. Our list of The Greatest Novels eliminates individual bias and reflects the collective ranking of the best books ever written.
