    Sorry, no never-ending stories allowed in this type of poll. All stories must have definable parameters and be fundamentally separate from all of the world's other novels.

    Seconding (or re-nominating, whichever applies) The Hound and seconding the Orient Express.

    Sorry, cannot vote for And Then There Were None - for me this is an unfortunate case of a movie (Russian) spoiling all impression and memories of a book. I cannot make myself vote for it, which is a shame.

    I nominate The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde.
    There's one hole in every revolution, large or small. And it's one word long.. people. No matter how big the idea they all stand under, people are small and weak and cheap and frightened. It's people that kill every revolution.
