99 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - Roald Dahl
100 Les Miserables - Victor Hugo



There should be another category for "do you remember what happens at the end?" And like me for "did you finish it or did you get bored and find pulp fiction to read?"
I want to add some on here but I guess that's a good list. If you copy this from me, do me a favor, replace "Hamlet" with "The Phantom of the Opera" by Gaston Leroux, and replace The Lion/Wicth etc with your choice. I would say Ender's Game.
