Boxall's list was compiled from questionaires sent to thousands of English instructors, and it has stirred up controversy within the literary world. Some critics claim the list is too heavy with English authors and not enough from other countries. Others feel the list is to weighted with 20th century books, and not enough classics. Many authors have more than one entry, Austen, McEwan, and Murakami among others.
Boxall's admitted he wanted to stir up contraversy as a way to inspire reading, and told the complainants to write their own lists... or something like that.
If you're familiar with the 1001 Books you Must Read Before you Die by Peter Boxall then you might very well be interested in an all-singing, all-dancing spreadsheet that Arukiyomi's developed to go along with the book.
Here are some of the features:
* All the 1001 books listed in descending chronological order
* Automatic calculation of what percentage you have read
* Automatic calculation of how many you have to read per month before you die
* Filter the entire list by author's last name
