How much I actually like a novel seems to bear very little relationship to how much other people like them, at least going by Amazon's customer reviews. Most novels I start reading I just give up after the first few pages. Also, where as the vast majority of customer reviews are 5 stars, for the minority of novels that I actually manage to finish, I would give only an average of 3 stars. So when I give 5 stars people can be assured I really did like the novel concerned.
The following list of books are the best novels I have read in my life and I would emphatically give them all 5 stars. A good proportion feature time travel!
I have 2 lists, the first list being novels for adults and the second list novels for children. Clicking on the picture of the book will take you to the relevant Amazon.com page. Clicking on the title of the book underneath the picture will take you to the relevant page on the UK version of Amazon.
PS Might have made a bit of a mess here. I'm having to experiment with html code but desirable end results do not appear to be best served by an experimental approach. So the pictures won't be evenly spaced etc.
