A lot a good stuff in here. I've personally read (or listened to) 14 of the titles here in their entirety and partially read an additional 4. Heard of a lot of the titles (or of their movie counterparts). However there's a lot I hadn't heard about either.
Unlike other titles in this series, "1001 Books" offers very few duds and many hidden gems. The 1001 books are organized by year of publication in century chapters. Most of the books, all novels, are given a half page outline including remarks about the author. More prominent authors and books receive a lavish 1-2 page presentation with cover and author photographs. Many French, German, Russian and other 'foreign' writers are included but information on English translations has not been provided. Title, author and general word indexes are provided.
If you didn't go to college or went to college and did NOT study literature or history then read books like this.
It's a valued experience.
If you ever feel stuck as to what you should read next, take a look through this book. The genres are varied so that there is something for everyone, and the titles included may have you considering authors previously overlooked.
