IJ
Catcher in the Rye
Book of the New Sun

Absalom Absalom
American Psycho (Winner)
Fahrenheit 451 (Close Second)

>>7607440
Actually I would say Fahrenheit 451 and American Psycho have such a large power gap on everything else in that even the worst books are obviously works of art, where as these two are just shit.

I know at least 80% of /lit/ hates both authors. Reddit must have been in attendance during voting.

>>7607504
Most of /lit/ likes Murakami just not 1Q84, but they also recognize that he does write for a larger audience. /lit/ has nothing wrong with more accessible authors you know?

IJ, followed closely by American Psycho.

Dune may actually be worse than both. Murakami doesn't deserve to be there but he's just mediocre.

They're all very good or important to read. The worst would probably be Catcher, Gatsby, and Stirner. Catcher I've liked, but in comparison to other works and omissions from the list (the Greek playwrights, for one) it pales. Gatsby can go for the same reason. Even though I like his philosophy, Stirner's book doesn't have a very good aesthetic since by his own admission he doesn't care about profound or correct ideas but his own self interest.
>>7607384
Why does /lit/ hate Pessoa so much? Some of the books on here are loved because of the depiction of solitude and loneliness (Underground, SteppenWolf, Osamu), so why does the book that portrays it most accurately and emphatically get shoved?

As you can see I've read a decent portion of the list.

Green- Good/Excellent
Blue- Decent, but didn't do much for me
Red X - Bad/skip

The only bad/skippable ones IMO are-
IJ
Slaughterhouse V
Catch 22
Siresn of Titan
Kafka on the Shore
Naked Lunch
Of Mice and Men

People need to stop finding reasons to hate books and more reasons to like books. If you hate like half the books you've read on a top 100 list of renowned classics (albeit a bit memed) maybe you're the problem.

I feel like the board was getting better right before hypersphere and /his/ came out. There were some nice non-fic and contemporary fiction generals and my backlog exploded.

Interesting but I've already read plutarch diodorus quintus curtius and arrian on alexander, i just dont care anymore.

>>7608111
I've tended to dislike American narratives of WW2 since I feel they are from a very parochial viewpoint that failed to properly engage with the majority of the participants for these two books in particular I've found the humor and absurdism to be too in your face without much subtlety. In addition they lean too much on the subject matter without much artistry and aesthetics for me.

Though to be fair I read catch 22 many years ago when I was quite young and had very little exposure to and appreciation of literature. If I read it again my judgment might change. I stand by my dismissal of slaughterhouse 5 however.

Why do people here hate Blood Meridian, F451, CitR, Book of the New Sun, Mason & Dixon but not War and Peace, Anna Karenina, Les Miserable, Brother Karamozov and so on… Are people being racist about American Lit?

>>7607376
I don't believe The Great Gatsby or American Psycho should be on there, personally. "Worst" is a little harsh because it's such a negative word. Neither book was bad. They're just not Top-100-Tier.
>>
>>7608210
Be smart. I would suggest you not to ask for recommendations on this board, as whatever you'll be recommended to read, will be called shit sooner or later.

That's not what I said at all. I just said I think it's a good book but not as good as the other entries on this list, and certainly not one I'd list in the top 100 books of all time.
Why is that stupid?

>>7608233
Post your list of 100 books please.

>>7608243
I don't have one, it'd take me a long while to make it. Seems like it'd be a pointless exercise anyway, considering your attitude - you'd call it awful no matter what.
Is that why I'm a retard? Because I wouldn't have American Psycho on it?
Fair enough. Bit harsh, but at least I know what you're arguing now.

Tough call. None of the books on the list are bad. The best one can do with this question is state what one dislikes. With that:

#1
#2
#6
#9
#22

Either read each and mostly hated the experience, or gave up no more than a third of the way through.

Aside from that there are fifteen others on the list I've not read. I'm not planning reading those any time soon, but I can't just say they're bad.

I didn't like it. It took far too many words and meandering around several broad themes to get to its core message. It also features 100 of pages of meaningless exposition. Moby-Dick and Blood Meridian did this, but those books were beautifully written. With IJ I felt like I was reading words written by an unemotional, cold and calculating serial killer attempting to ape stoner culture and college literary student terminology in order to attempt basic human relativity.

I'm 19 years old.

I am handsome, smart, athletic and virile.

I have a novel that is in it's final editing stage, and a creative writing professor at my college has read the first draft and thinks it's saleable.

I have a girlfriend who is confident, articulate, playful and spontaneous.

I have a small group of interesting friends from different social and academic backgrounds, and I also have many other acquaintances who see me as a reliable source of humour and good company.

Both my parents are alive and in good health.

I have no regrets.

I have already experienced three existential crises, the latter of which was described as having the depth and profundity of a man twice my age.

I am a passionate lover, a sharp thinker, and a trader of witty repartee.

I am not self-pitying, meek or needlessly humble.

I will live a good life at your expense.

>Dune

The one science fiction novel that dates break the mold of "computers! Space travel that's simple to explain because it's similar to ours! Look, it's 'science fiction' but there's magic too!"

Herbert actually did something original, and managed to throw some actual political intrigue in there at the same time.

It's pathetic how predictable this list is given the tiny sample size, just shows how /lit/ is completely lacking in variety.

It's top 100 not bottom 100 you fucking pretentious pleb.

>>7617048
What?
Given so few people voted, the list should contain a certain number of anomalies, the fact it didn't shows how homogenous people on /lit/ are.

the fourth part, arguably the core of the book, is fairly dull and, at times, a chore. also it happens to be the longest part.

the rest is really good

Madame Bovary, because it's just someone's agony dragging on page after page
The Hobbit, because it's almost kiddy-tier reading
>the bible
Lolita, because the only reason it's on this list is its controversy
Wuthering Heights, because how could one ever enjoy reading such petty characters. Seriously, instead of reading this I could visit an elderly retirement home and witness the same conversations

But who am I? I haven't even read half of these books.

This is a good post, but I have noticed this sentiment showing up a great deal lately, which is a good thing. Even Gaddis posting is a reaction towards constant IJ and Pynchon posting
