Time's Top 100 Novels

So, Time magazine has come out with a list of what they pick as the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to the present.

Turns out that I've read more of them than I figured:

Animal Farm by George Orwell
The Crying of Lot 49 by Thomas Pynchon
The Lion, the Witch, and The Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis
Neuromancer by William Gibson
1984 by George Orwell
Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Ubik by Philip K. Dick
Watchmen by Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons

All of which are good books, which would lead me to believe that the other 91 books on the list are at least decent as well. But best? Hmmm. While Ubik is a good book, there are several Philip K. Dick novels that I'd rank above it: A Scanner Darkly, The Man in the High Castle, and VALIS, just to name three.
