message 1: by Velvetink (new)

Velvetink So many books on this list that look interesting. Will have to wishlist them all.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads The Professor and the Madman is non-fiction, not a novel.

Y'all want me to remove it?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Because this is supposedly a list for novels?


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Personally I'd concur ... Hubert, you created the list: Is this supposed to be for fiction only, or are nonfiction entries OK? (In the latter case, might I suggest that the list's description be amended accordingly?)


littlebookbosomed bookreview Is Gabriel's Inferno the only book that looks modern while the others look 'classic'?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I Claudius???????????


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Susanna wrote: "I Claudius???????????"

Teehee. Well, maybe because Claudius was a scholar at heart and wrote a history of Rome?

I apologize for not having seen this message for 2 years. Indeed, the list is for novels about professors and academics. Thanks for your collective diligence!

Ana Changing Places David Lodge is a master, Changing Places has it all, wonderful characters, delicious plot that keeps you guesseing and laghing all the time. Wonderfull read.


message 12: by Ana (new)

Ana The Chosen by Chaim Potok is a masterpiece. Incredibly Mooving. I loved it. Through the years, Starting with Davita's Harps, and then The Book of Lights, I have read every book that Potok wrote that I could put may hands on.

Mike I removed Tom Stoppard's Arcadia because it is a play, not a novel.
