Lobstergirl I'm not convinced The Magic Mountain is the upper classes, the way these other novels are.


message 2: by David (new)

David Lentz The novel is set in a sanitarium atop the Swiss Alps inhabited by the extremely wealthy but I defer to your perspective.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Where on the list is it, Richard? (Makes it easier to remove.)

It's no. 160 on page 2. Thanks for taking care of it.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Thanks very much, Richard.

I'm with you on this one, as I frowned as I noticed this title :-) There are several others though I wouldn't quite consider 'upper class' either, more sort of 'upper middle class'. But the title says 'Upper Classes, so I guess it's alright...? Lobstergirl, you are the creator of this list, so you have the final word on this, as far as I'm concerned...


message 8: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Removed Cranford which is definitely not about the upper classes.


message 9: by BookLovingLady (last edited Sep 20, 2019 07:53AM) (new)

BookLovingLady I'm not sure, but I think the British 'upper class' is mixed with the British 'upper middle-class' (and there is a difference...)
