Has anyone read Tristram Shandy? I've heard it mentioned before.

I'm surprised the psychopathic Guillaume Apollinaire was left out of the list.

"The Castle" and "War and Peace" are among my favorite books.

Lot of people say "The name of the rose" and "Foucault's Pendulum" by Eco are hard for reading. I've read "The name of the rose" when i was 15 just because they said it's hard and lot of people don't finish it, but i think i wasn't concentrated on book and i probably didn't understand it good... because my main goal at the time was to read it till the end, not to understand it. So, this thread actually reminded me to take that book again and now seriously try to read it, and understand it.
