“Since it is so likely that children will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage.” -- C.S. Lewis
Love this. I'm sharing it around.
Stacy, Isn't it great? Lot's of fun (and funny) choices.
Hmmm, they recommended Wicked.That was one of the few books I read during High School when High School made reading a despicable choir for me.I shall see if there is any surprise, surprise for me eyes.
I was surprised at the number of books on the list that I hadn't read yet. Hopefully there are some new favorites hiding on that flowchart.
Interesting. I'm not a fan of NPR, but I do try to keep current with YA novels, though right now I'm working on another romantic suspense. What can I say?Thanks for the follow, Roger. I hope your book does well.
Thanks, Kathi. Yeah, I'm more a fan of the flowchart than I am of NPR, but I do think they came up with an interesting list.
Wow, that's quite a chart. So many great books on it.
Donna, Yeah, I've got to get reading!
Homie! I'm an OG Fantasy novelist myself, son.Seriously, though? Thanks for the follow on Twitter. I stopped by to follow your blog as well.Cool to meet you, Roger!As to your post I've seen this chart before, but that doesn't make it any less awesome. The cool part is that even I, who I consider to be well read in both Fantasy and Sci-Fi, have only read 10-15% of these books.
Matthew -- I also consider myself fairly well-read in both of those genres and there were quite a few titles that had slipped through the cracks for me. Not that NPR has the definitive list, but I do view it as a reasonably "educated" group of people who might have a thing or two to say on the subject. A great book source for me in recent years has been John Scalzi's "Big Idea" on his Whatever blog. A few stinkers on his list, but the vast majority of the titles have been very enjoyable.
That's such a cool chart! I've read a fair bit of fantasy, but not as much sci-fi. Still, I'm willing to bet I haven't read the majority of works on that chart!
Trisha -- I agree. Very cool!
