BBC 100 Novels That Shaped Our World

Stories have the power to change us. The BBC asked a panel of leading writers, curators and critics to choose 100 genre-busting novels that have had an impact on their lives, and this is the result. These English language novels, written over the last 300 years, range from children’s classics to popular page turners. Organised into themes, they reflect the ways books help shape and influence our thinking. There was months of deliberation and reflection by the panel but what would you have chosen? You can join in and share the novel that's shaped you on our Facebook page or using #mybooklife on Twitter.​
