A slightly odd list of 99 books

3 out of 5 stars

Wouldn't actually recommend that you read this but it does offer an interesting antidote to the now rather common lists of top 100s (and pre-dates them by years). Having said that, some of the choices are really rather strange (eg Len Deighton!) and perhaps even perverse (would anyone of sound mind really equate 'Goldfinger' with 'Heart of the Matter', say?).

Still, an amusing diversion – you also think that it must have taken an enormous exercise of the will for Burgess to avoid including one of his own in the list (any one of them could occupy the no 100 slot is probably what we are meant to think?).
