message 1: by Janna (new)

Janna I wouldn't consider hardly any of these cult classics. I mean, Huckleberry Finn?? Catcher in the Rye?? The Great Gatsby?? Someone needs to look up the definition of cult.


message 2: by Ian (new)

Ian While some of these books certainly don't fit into the "cult" category today, most of those that don't today did at the time when they were written. Even something like Huckleberry Finn, which has been considered a classic for as long as it's been around, was and still is one of the most frequently banned or challenged books in existence.


message 3: by Jamie (new)

Jamie This list has an awful lot of books by Kerouac and Vonnegut. Not that there is anything wrong with that, On the Road and Slaughterhouse Five are generally agreed to be cult, but not everything they wrote. Maybe remove most of their books from this list, create a separate list of "cult authors" and put them on it. And then add some other Cult books to this list because there seems to be some missing volumes. (catch 22?)


message 4: by Gabrielle (new)

Gabrielle Beowulf??? No


message 5: by Salthill (new)

Salthill Why isn't Beowulf cult?


message 6: by Violeta (new)

Violeta there are some authors that are excellent yet I don't find them here...WHY???on the other hand there are some I consider of little value.

couldn't agree more


message 8: by Ross (new)

Ross Lan why twilight trilogy not included in here? Lots of craps..

Exactly! This list seems to me to be a list of canonical western contemporary classics rather than a list of cult classics. Here's a tip: if a book ever has been on a high school or lit 101 required reading list, it's possibly a classic, but there is definitely nothing cult-ish about it.


message 11: by Randi (new)

Randi I agree- these are classics, but very few are cult classics


message 12: by Paul (new)

Paul Bowes Unfortunately, the original list compiler didn't define 'cult classic', and seems to have been confused about what the phrase denotes. If you look at his own votes, most of his choices are well-known, or very well-known books.

Sadly, I don't think that this list is useful, since as others have noticed, in effect it's just another list of popular classics.


message 13: by Paul (new)

Paul Bowes Checked for duplicates: 6 books removed.


message 14: by Artemis (new)

Artemis Eclectica There are books repeated on this list. i.e. Fahrenheit 451' Let the Right One in, etc.
