Get the low-down on the best fiction ever written. Over 230 of the world's greatest novels are covered, from Quixote(1614) to Orhan Pamuk's Snow(2002), with fascinating information about their plots and their authors - and suggestions for what to read next. The guide comes complete with recommendations of the best editions and translations for every genre from the most enticing crime and punishment to love, sex, heroes and anti-heroes, not to mention all the classics of comedy and satire, horror and mystery and many other literary genres. With feature boxes on experimental novels, female novelists, short reviews of interesting film and TV adaptations, and information on how the novel began, this guide will point you to all the classic literature you'll ever need.… (mais)

Divided by genre and supported by an index, this guide is easy to use, browse through and consult. There's a good variety of international authors, although still quite anglo-centric, with suggested translations, suggestions of similar reads and movies if the novel was set to the screen. There are definitions, summaries and the list of novels for more prolific authors.
One cannot read all novels (nor would one want to) and this helps makes discerning choices based on interests and tastes. It certainly allowed me to add to my must-read list and set aside others while still having an idea about the novels I know I'll never read. ( )

Humphhh - I thought I was well-read until I came across this world view.. ( )

Perfect size for the shelf behind the dunny. The "recommended translations" of non-english books is very helpful.

Covering just over 200 great novels, you can argue til the cows come home about the editor's choices - who was left out, why this novel and not that, etc, etc, etc. List books about books are entirely subjective, but can take you in totally different directions.
This book is split into 12 genres and has a world-wide breadth to it, and pleasingly for each book in translation (of which there are many), a suggested translator is given. For each novel a suggestion for further reading is given, plus the best film/TV adaptations where appropriate.
Some of the choices are not the obvious ones - for instance we don't have a Maigret book for George Simenon, but 'Dirty snow' about a teenage killer, although Maigret does merit his own sidebar.
Some of the genres used are the normal ones, but often with a twist - so we have 'Crime and punishment'; also 'Rites of passage', and 'Making it'; my favourite was 'A sense of place'.
The test I have of these catalogues is how many books I buy from it - I've already ordered half a dozen.
A great book to dip into and feed your bibliomania! ( )
