How is this only #180? The most beautiful book and most well-developed characters I've ever read (about).

124 Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

Because it is the best and most beaulitul lion ever

125 Renee and Jay - J.J. Murray

touching story about a interracial relationship

126 Airborn - Kenneth Oppel

no matter what else i read this will always be the best

127 Getting Married - August Strindberg
128 Just Stupid - Andy Griffiths
129 The Cay - Theodore Taylor

130 Tangerine - Edward Bloor
131 The Chocolate War - Robert Cormier
132 Chicken Feathers - Joy Cowley
133 Gotterdammerung - Nick Perumov

russian fantasy. I recommend it to everyone - sultanmurat

134 The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald
135 Noughts and Crosses - Malorie Blackman

A stunning book. Must read. This book is a rare gem, it manages to thrust the sensitive issue of racism into the public eye while being smart, witty, emotional and appealing to teenagers and adults. It's one of those books where you finish, sit back, and reflect on everything you've just read with either a completely different, or a stronger perspective on the subject and sentimental value.

seriously the best book I've ever read, so nicely written and so sad - katecameron

136 The Magic Faraway Tree - Enid Blyton
137 Robinson Crusoe - Daniel Defoe

I felt silly when it wasn't on the list... Choice is yours

138 Heist Society - Ally Carter
139 Wizard's First Rule - Terry Goodkind

Just amazing, I'm on book 6 out of 11 so far. You end up getting really attached to the characters and what happens to them and their friends. The books also have a labelled map of the world at the front so you can follow the characters and how far they've traveled. Really must read these books, they really are phenomena.

140 Lord of the Flies - William Golding
