    oooh yeah, good choices. animal farm isn't there because they only allowed 1 per author in the top 21 and 1984 was more popular (and in my opinion rightly so). i dunno about of mice and men though....

    are there any that you think should be there, but aren't? I'm not an expert on books, but my favourite not on the list is Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut. Lord of the Flies as well, I guess.
