The Stealth Hippopotamus: No Discworld novel?!eff you
TuteTibiImperes: Pratchett's best work, IMO, wasn't a Discworld novel (though the feel is similar)
Schroepnuts: Why is To Kill A Mockinbird not on this list. Idiots.

Sybarite: J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter: The Complete Series (1997-2007)[captionsearch.com image 455x325]
Carth: Reads like "The greatest books of all time by someone who just finished their first college English course"
Xanadone: No Pratchett, no Tolkien, no Douglas Adams, but they included the Inexplicably Successful Talentless Scottish Hack (Rowling, that is)??? Fark them.
dj_spanmaster: Sybarite: J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter: The Complete Series (1997-2007)[captionsearch.com image 455x325]Great Expectations and Pride and Prejudice both made me drown in misery for months. No assigned reading here - I wanted to see what it was all about. Blerg, I say! Beloved I couldn't even read halfway. Of that whole list, only Potter and Gatsby have I read more than once and continue to enjoy.So "You's trollin'" could be said about the entirety that list. It's the whole point of lists.

Lt. Cheese Weasel: At least we can all still agree 'the works of Susan Sontag are self indulgent crap'./get a hit crash.
FLMountainMan: Ranking the top books of all time is like ranking the most beautiful women of all time. There's a large amount of subjectivity, bias towards the contemporary, changing perceptions of superior attributes, groupthink, etc....
