For as long as I can remember, I wanted to read the "World's 100 best novels." And now I am! (I got the list - and there are many variations - from my local librarian.)
I just finished Butler's THE WAY OF ALL FLESH. One problem...how did this make the list?
It has a certain charm, but the language turns from splendid to turgid, sometimes in the same sentence. And the plot drags on and on and on and on...in today's rapid fire world, this whole book could be reduced to a Twitter feed!
Anyway, it's fun. Now on the next title on the list.
