Bibliophile Sorry, I've only read the Agatha Christie, and don't remember it terribly well but I think it's safe to say it wasn't the best book of 1977 :P


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads The Shining is also eligible, but I haven't read it, so I'm not voting for it.

It's also from 1944, so it shouldn't have been on this list for reasons of its year of publication anyway ... ;)

ETA: I DID add Agatha Christie's Autobiography, though, which was posthumously published in 1977 (Christie died in 1976) and is actually a pretty darn good read, as memoirs and Christie's writing go.
