BBC Culture’s 100 greatest British novels

So while looking round the web this last week I came across BBC Culture’s 100 greatest British novels. So how many have you read? I count about 8 entries, which are:

  • The Chronicles of Narnia (CS Lewis)
  • His Dark Materials (Philip Pullman)

  • Pride and Prejudice (Jane Austen)

However this comes out at 18 books as published, not sure if they should not have broken up the series into the individual books. But it gives a chance to see how one is doing.

The above will take you about…
