Atlas Shrugged is it for me. I own the Hubbard set but have yet to read it.

Almost all by second or third raters, including the latest literary darling, David Foster Wallace. Carl Sandberg might be the exception.

This guy apparently never heard of Harry Stephen Keeler and his meganovels.

I've never read any of these (I think that I could live pretty comfortably without reading most of them), and I hadn't even heard of seven of these ten novels.

With a few exceptions, I don't like novels that are much longer than 250 pages or so. I tend to prefer novels that have a leanness and precision reminiscent of good short stories (I think that Cormac McCarthy's The Road is a good recent example of the type of novel I like).

Hard to believe Hubbard pecked out that crap, as crazy and stoned as he was in his later years.
