I disagree - 9 of the 15 is not bad, considering I am British

Quoting Elisa:


Ohhhh, mr Darcy....



"IT is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife."

lol



Hehehe... with reference to this point, my favourite opening sentence is placed in Anna Karenina:

"All happy families resemble one another, but each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.

One of the most human books I ever read: "The Book of the Dun Cow" by Walter Wangerin. And maybe "Waterbabies" by Charles Kingsley... Now I am becoming sentimental... it's the fault of the man in yellow coat...

Because, I am and must be, unlike you, objective. I don't see any Turkish novel among any top-fifteen-list. As back as 120 years or so our own novel tradition goes.

Piff! How can you decide that my list was not objective. It most certainly was!! You imagined that the majority of my list were British authors when in fact only 9 of 15 were. What next will you accuse me of - bad detective work ....?? lol
