    This list is absurd. “The Sound of Music” is not based on a novel. It fictionalizes a true story. And “Little Red Riding Hood” a novel? Come on! “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” is a poem, not a novel. Someone who is not a literature major must have put this list together.

      If you haven’t checked out this blog yet you should. It’s got a bunch of really funny stories that are all super clean. I’m trying to get more readers to my blog in hopes of being able to publish someday. So if you check it out and like it please tell family and friends about it. http://www.jaredslighterside.blogspot.com

      It’s the decline of the west, Mr. Spaniel. Haven’t you noticed?

    I super agree with Bill.

    “Goodfellas” isn’t a novel, it’s a non-fiction book. Who put this thing together??

    1. Lisa says:

      ETA: “Goodfellas” is based on the non-fiction book “Wiseguy” by Nicholas Pileggi. Whoever made this list got the title of the book right but it isn’t a novel.

    In addition to the above, it should be noted that children’s books and short stories are a long way from being novels.

    Another note: just because a novel is made into a movie does not make it “famous”. How many people knew that True Grit was a novel? I’m surprised that a couple of novels didn’t make your list such as Forrest Gump and the Color Purple.
