10 Science Fiction Novels You Pretend to Have Read (And Why You Should Actually Read Them)
Gravity's Rainbow is SF? Infinite Jest is not SF and neither is Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell (I gave this to a person I didn't much like for Xmas one year). Aside from those I've read all except Starmaker (started it recently but couldn't finish it. I loved LaFM when I read it years ago but now I'm too scared to revisit it), The Long Tomorrow (had not heard of it until now) and Dhalgren (couldn't finish it). Dune I've read three times, mostly to confirm my initial opinion - it's the most overrated SF novel of all time. My biggest 'never read' SF (until about eight years ago anyway) was probably Neuromancer; which I blame on several misleading blurbs and descriptions I'd read about it over the years.
