You must read "A Prayer For Owen Meany". I am so glad to see it on that list. That book is one of the most brilliant pieces of writing I have ever encountered. It also has lots of re-reading potential.

I suppose it's presence balances out "Clan of the Cave Bear" being on there. Yech.

I suppose I shouldn't say this as it might result in me getting kicked about by other anthropologists, but I actually like that series. Really, I do.
