In preparation for the 2013 Hundie Challenge, I took the liberty of removing all of the novels from the Modern Library Top 100 that I've already read. While I don't know how long any of the remaining 87 are, I am irritated that at least three of the novels that have been filtered out are one-night reads: ANIMAL FARM, HEART OF DARKNESS, and CALL OF THE WILD.
THE GREAT GATSBY by F. Scott Fitzgerald
DARKNESS AT NOON by Arthur Koestler
THE GRAPES OF WRATH by John Steinbeck
1984 by George Orwell
SLAUGHTERHOUSE-FIVE by Kurt Vonnegut
ANIMAL FARM by George Orwell
LORD OF THE FLIES by William Golding
NOSTROMO by Joseph Conrad
THE CATCHER IN THE RYE by J.D. Salinger
A CLOCKWORK ORANGE by Anthony Burgess
HEART OF DARKNESS by Joseph Conrad
LORD JIM by Joseph Conrad
THE CALL OF THE WILD by Jack London
