Top 2 will make it to the List.

Please vote for as many as you want.

The number of votes will also decide the final place of these novels in the Top 100 List, positions 90 to 100.

I vote for American Psycho and White Fang.

10-08-2013, 07:31 AM
My nominee, American Psycho. Hopefully it makes it :)

White Fang! Love it and, incidentally, it's the only one I've read of the group...

Get yourself a copy of American Psycho. One of the most disturbing novels you will ever read.

have just checked - I have it in .mobi format. What bliss, what a lot of books to read! I want to live for ever!!!! (and never work, of course)

Haven't read these, though some have been on the list for quite some time now.

The poll will be closed on Tuesday, Oct 15

I voted Little Women. I can't stand Brett Easton Ellis, he bores the pants off me - I just find his writing so dull. American Psycho was alot more to the point and very disturbing, but I didn't enjoy it.
On The Road I also found a little too convoluted and White Fang - well, it's just been too long since I read it.

Ellis and London look like they might advance, but the other three are very close behind. Everything might change in the next 30 hours (the poll will be closed in about 30 hours from now)

Shame Ellison isn't getting more votes. I personally enjoyed that book very much. It should make the list, but we shall see

10-15-2013, 07:53 AM
White Fang and American Psycho make it to Top 100

Ellison came so close.

10-16-2013, 10:04 PM
Jean, this was a really tough grouping. Any chance for the "Judges" to intervene on this one?

At the very least Ellison and "Little Women" should get "Honorable Mention", no?

10-16-2013, 10:52 PM
Perhaps future tourneys using random grouping should consider a double-elimination round.

10-16-2013, 11:10 PM
We'll have, as pablo suggested, an Honorable Mentions list, but for the Top 100, alas. I said countless times in the Nominations thread that the secondings were the first round of voting. If these novels had collected enough secondings, they wouldn't have had to compete here.

And so "TPTB" have spoken!! Oh well, there you have it!!!!

And so "TPTB" have spoken!! Oh well, there you have it!!!!I'll assume you are just speaking for your own suggestion, which didn't have very much to do with what I was talking about, anyway. I've also been thinking about Enhancing Our Grading System (http://www.thedarktower.org/palaver/showthread.php?14685-Enhancing-Our-Grading-System&goto=newpost) -- probably not too long now til that thread will need bumped again for pablo. For Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man, I hope to insinuate only this: more people should read it. Whether it is listed here or there, I actually hardly care. Just for anyone unfamiliar, I want to say "give it a try" while there's a chance, and if there are "PTBs" that don't want to hear even that... too bad.

Mike, the main meaning of this event, at least as far as I am concerned, is exactly this: to draw people's attention to the books they haven't read, since the books are nominated by people whose opinion they value. I know I haven't been working on it hard enough, but I hope I (or none of us, for that matter) am not going to die tomorrow.

There's a special thread (http://www.thedarktower.org/palaver/showthread.php?17606-Catching-Up-with-Reading-the-Nominated-Novels)dedicated to this, by the way.
