I've not read even one.

I have heard of 10. Mostly because of movies made of them.

But I've head a problem with anyone claiming authority over what is objectively the best literature since about 5th grade.

Interesting collection. Quite a geographical spread, which is nice to see.

Historical fiction isn't really my thing, but I've read 8 of them.
