Booklovinglady jo wrote: "The Divine Comedy has to go! definitely not a novel."

I agree the original is not a novel but there is a Dutch translation in 'novel' form (which I haven't added, by the way), so personally I'd be very careful removing titles from this list.


message 16: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Lobstergirl wrote: "#63, The Golden Ass, is by Apuleius, who lived under the Roman Empire but was not actually Italian...he was from North Africa (today, Algeria)."

I removed it.
