I love this thread. I'm making a list of all those I haven't read. I'm a Thomas Hardy fan. MAYOR OF CASTERBRIDGE and TESS OF THE D'URBERVILLES are amazing, imo. I'm also a big JANE EYRE fan. But having said that, I'm not sure I could ever pick a "Best of All Time" novel. It would probably vary from day to day. But I didn't want these three books to go unrecognized. In a more recent time period, I might go with THE BOOK THIEF and ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE.
