  1. I have read 3, though there were also unlisted works by Vonnegut (Sirens of Titan) and Stephenson (The Diamond Age). Of the entire list, 10 listed and different titles by 6 others, None of this means much; always enjoy lists, however(H)

  2. Neuromancer? Is this actually good writing?

    Snow Crash I liked a lot – but in the top 100? Hmm…

    The rest I agree to – although I haven’t heard Ubik I have read the rest.

  3. There’s also a graphic novel…The Watchmen (which is one of the graphic novels that convinced me that I don’t like graphic novels).

    In many ways there seems to be little rhyme or reason to the choices.

  4. The Watchmen (which is one of the graphic novels that convinced me that I don’t like graphic novels).

    What are the other graphic novels you’ve read?
