Nice to see that my favourite author got the most defining book of the 20th Century. Oh hang on it was for 1984, the one that is only 75% as predicted and not for Animal farm which is well cute, and defined totalitarianism and Stalinisim to a tee.
Here’s the full list
Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists by Robert Tressell
The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell
The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
The Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger
Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding
I’ve got to admit that I have not read them all, but lets be honest how the **** can a diary of a young girl be considered in even the same list as the diary of a singleton?
For anyone who is really into George Orwell then maybe a trip to Burma is worthwhile.
