I found this list while reading the Guardian*: The 100 best novels written in English: the full list. It is a great article. The list was compiled by Robert McCrum and here is the link to the article, Robert McCrum reflects on his choices.
*The Guardian is an outstanding progressive newspaper that is available for no charge online. It is at least as good as the New York Times. You can help support the paper by making a donation – a monthly donation is best.
