The 10 Greatest American Novels

Happy Independence Day!
In honor of the occasion, I thought I'd post a list of the 10 greatest American novels!

This is not my list, it was composed by Melissa Kelly at Ask.com here.

  1. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain

  2. The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne

  3. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

  4. The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane

  5. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

  6. The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck

  7. Call of the Wild by Jack London

  8. Invisible Man: A Novel by Ralph Ellison

  9. A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway

  10. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
I feel a bit unpatriotic, having only read To Kill a Mockingbird and Huckleberry Finn.
Uncle Sam needs ME....to read the rest of those books.
