NPR’s Top 100 Science Fiction Novels? Sold.

NPR recently came out with its list of the top 100 science fiction novels and, like always, I’m sold. I’m such a sucker for book lists, but this one comes at such a good time: I’ve been saying for the past few months that I want to read more science fiction, particularly the “classics.” What are the classics? Bam! Here’s a list.

Here’s the top 10, and hey! I’ve read four (well, six if you consider that the Lord of the Rings trilogy is made up of three books):

  1. Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien
  2. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
  3. Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
  4. The Dune Chronicles by Frank Herbert
  5. A Song of Fire and Ice series by George R.R. Martin
  6. 1984 by George Orwell
  7. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
  8. The Foundation Trilogy by Isaac Asimov
  9. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
  10. American Gods by Neil Gaiman

Also making the list (albeit further down): my two favorite books/series of all time! The Stand comes in at No. 25 while The Dark Tower Series is No. 23. Sweet!
