I’m sure everyone has a list of shame, a list of those books (or movies, or records) that you really should have got around to reading, but that have somehow passed you by. The ones that, when you read them, you’ll probably end up wishing you’d read them earlier – or you might regret reading them at all!
This post was promoted by Chris’s spluttering indignation that I hadn’t, I’m ashamed to admit, read Neuromancer by William Gibson, or Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451. So this year I’m determined that if I don’t complete the List of Shame, at least I might put a bit of a dent in it.
The List of Shame
Neuromancer – William Gibson
The Name of the Wind – Patrick Rothfuss
Fahrenheit 451 – Ray Bradbury
2001 a Space Odyssey – Arthur C Clarke
The Lies of Locke Lamora – Scott Lynch
Ash – Mary Gentle
The Left Hand of Darkness – Ursula Le Guin
Brasyl – Ian McDonald
Cloud Atlas – David Mitchell
Pavane – Keith Roberts
Memory Sorrow and Thorn – Tad Williams
The Wheel of Time – Robert Jordan / Brandon Sanderson
Authors Of Shame – people I should have read but haven’t.
I can hear lots of cries of “I can’t believe you haven’t read….?” I’m sure there are loads more. Share your List of Shame with me, lets get some of these books read!
