Zane Just skimming through the top 100, and I really just have to ask: How in any way, shape, or form, is 'The Fault in Our Stars' either underrated or obscure? If anything, shouldn't it be on a list for the overrated and popular? Same for a number of other books on this list, like To Kill A Mockingbird, The Hunger Games, and The Diary of Anne Frank. Looks like people just really can't read any more.
