that is a really, really surprising list.

Emma says that The Blind Assassin is REALLY good, so you should add that to your list. I have it but haven't read it yet.

Ohhhhh, Watership Down is amazing. So is "Les Miserables," that book changed my life. Both come highly recommended from me, if you're interested.
