Kind of a weird list
I'll freely admit that it's a good rule-of-thumb-thingy to get started, but it's why does it sometimes list a whole series as one entry and sometimes just one book out of a major series?
I mean, "Small Gods" and "Going postal" as representative of the entire Discworld?
Or "Dragonflight" without any mention that it's followed by about two dozen further novels?
I also never heard of the Dune "Chronicles".
Dune Series, Dune Saga, Duniverse, sure but "Chronicles"...?
(a book that follows the adventures of Paul Atreides - what is this, Enid Blyton? )
EDIT: My bad, just realized that it's now marketed under this name.
Maybe to tie in the (mostly god-awful) prequels better?
Makes me wonder whether whoever made this list actually read those books at all!
And yeah, there's definitely a lot of good stuff missing.
Regardless, thanks GreenMonky for sharing!
