<p><em>Time Magazine</em> critics Lev Grossman and Richard Lacayo released their 100 best english language novels since 1923, and, as I would expect, J.R.R. Tolkien's <em>The Lord of the Rings</em> makes the cut. There are some other notable works on this list, including C.S. Lewis's <em>The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe</em>, George Orwell's <em>1985</em>, and <em>Neuromancer</em> by William Gibson.
</p><p>I've never been a big fan of "All-time" lists on such a subjective topic as literature, but they did include a good number of the big ones that <em>should</em> be there (LOTR and LWW, being 2 of those). Sadly, you'd rarely find those two books listed on any "all-time" list in today's universities.
</p><p>Kudos to <em>Time</em> for not succumbing to the intellectual "elite" and dropping such well-loved, best-selling works from their list.
