by: Abinadi Ayerdis | on: 2011-01-25 02:50:27

Okay, I have thought and thought about this, and I can't finish this list. Here are the first four:

  1. On The Road by Jack Kerouac
  2. Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut
  3. O Pioneers! by Willa Cather
  4. For Whom the Bell Tolls by Enest Hemingway

      5. Horseman, Pass By by Larry McMurty
or
      5. Blood Meridian or the Evening Redness in the West by Cormac McCarthy

and

      6. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
or
      6. Absalom, Absalom! by William Faulkner
or
      6. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
or
      6. Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon
or
      6. Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison

Thoughts?
