Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Wasn't Frank Herbert (Dune) an American?

Yes. I removed him.


message 3: by Lucky Teapot (new)

Lucky Teapot The list doesn't really show "best european literature", but the (im)balance of powers in Europe ;)


message 4: by Lamia (new)

Lamia Leo Tolstoy, Russian !


message 5: by Ben (new)

Ben Crime and Punishment (my favorite European book) is on the list twice. Is there any way the two records can be merged?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I told it to look for duplicates; if it's still on twice, I'll have to merge it.


message 7: by Matti (last edited Oct 20, 2011 03:23PM) (new)

Matti Where is Hermann Hesse's Steppenwolf and / or Demian? They should definately be on the list! Also Calvino's Cosmocomics.. ;)

EDIT: Never mind, I got the idea.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads You could add them. It's easy to add books to a list, at the top of the list, at the tab next to "all votes."


message 9: by Janine (new)

Janine Corman While England is technically in Europe, when I think of "European Literature", I tend to think of Continental Europe.


message 10: by Michael (new)

Michael Fahrenheit 451 is American


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads It would help in removing it to know where it was.


message 12: by Jacob (new)

Jacob Seager Ray Bradbury is from Illinois. He is not European.


message 13: by [deleted user] (new)

Agatha Christie, really!


message 14: by Booklovinglady (new)

Booklovinglady John wrote: "Agatha Christie, really!"

Although I haven't voted for any of her books, as the title of the Listopia is "Best European Literature", the description does say "Best books written by European Authors", and Agatha Christie certainly wrote those...


message 15: by [deleted user] (new)

yes but Agatha Christie does not even fall into the category of literature, there are a large amout a great fiction not in the list, I mean is every Balzac novel there for example or the huge amounts of works Swift wrote, Johnson, De Vega, etc...?


message 16: by Booklovinglady (last edited Sep 21, 2017 09:06PM) (new)

Booklovinglady John wrote: "... there are a large amout a great fiction not in the list, ..."

Just add them, I'd say. One can only vote for 100 titles and as there are many, many more great European authors...


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads If you don't see something you think should be on it, add it. (At the top of the list, at the tab next to "All votes.")
