The 100 Greatest Novels of All Time

An interesting community on Google+ that I am moderating, THE 100 GREATEST NOVELS OF ALL TIME uses individual Top Ten lists to create a constantly updated, never-finished ranking of the greatest novels ever written. Looking forward to contributions from +Shikhin Sethi , +Duncan Ellis , and others. Join us!

Post a list of your Ten Most Important Novels of all Time, composed of books you have actually read.  I give your #1 choice 10 votes, your #2 choice 9 votes, and so on -- keeping track of everything in a master spreadsheet I share with the group.

Here is my own list:


1. PALE FIRE
2. LES MISERABLES
3. LOLITA
4. A TALE OF TWO CITIES
5. SLAUGHTERHOUSE-FIVE
6. THE LORD OF THE RINGS (consolidated into a single volume)
7. A PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A YOUNG MAN
8. DON QUIXOTE
9. ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND
10. HUCKLEBERRY FINN

What's on your Top Ten?
