Fantastinės knygos - flashmob

SF&F books flashmob from Hyalma, Ekzon, Myrngwaur...

This is a list of the 50 most significant science fiction/fantasy novels, 1953-2002, according to the Science Fiction Book Club. Bold the ones you've read, strike-out the ones you hated, italicize those you started but never finished, and put an asterisk beside the ones you loved.
Modifications:
? is for the books I'm really not sure about, not for those I can't remember for sure.
Simply bold - just liked them.

What a nice opportunity to make some mistakes while using my second foreign language :)
I'm going to read Dune, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, The Left Hand of Darkness, The Man in the High Castle. I'm not going to read Slaughterhouse-5. Nothing in the film or in Utopia 14 striked any chord with me. Given the fact I've really appreciated most of the dystopias I've watched or read, I doubt if Vonnegut is worth a second try. But then, maybe I was too young.
