What's the deal with all these ppl who complain about all the great books missing from one of these lists but never bother to add any themselves? The books aren't there because idiots like you are too lazy or stupid to add them. It's like moaning about how badly maintained your garden is or how untidy your room is.

And what exactly does it say about a novel when its admirers are all too thick to understand how listopia works?


message 4: by Shahryar (new)

Shahryar Hey... relax.


message 5: by S.k (new)

S.k To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favourites!


message 6: by Laura (new)

Laura #48 Khaled Hosseini is not an American writer.


message 7: by Kaion (new)

Kaion I beg to disagree.
