Stupid lists

So I stumbled over Time's list of the "All-time 100 novels" since 1923. Needless to say, I have some issues with their choices. For crying out loud Are You There God? It's Me Margaret Bleah!!! Too many Americans and not enough Anyone other than Brits. The only Canadian novel is The Blind Assassin? Not even Margaret Atwood's best, imho... On the other hand, I was pleasantly surprised to see Christina Stead's The Man Who Loved Children . Oh well; I don't suppose you could get two people to agree on even 10 great novels, let alone 100. (but Judy Blume... give me a break!)
