Topping the list is J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which the Telegraph said "stands as a cornerstone of the decade, a melding of high and low culture that appeals to all ages and nations."
While Rowling "is never less than absorbing" and "makes reading a 700-page book seem easy," Meyer's first novel, though considered influential, is described as "astonishing, mainly for the ineptitude of her prose" and "teen vampire schlock."
Other novels with a sci-fi, fantasy, or horror slant that made the list include:
#3 The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
#36 Miracles of Life by J.G. Ballard
#43 The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman
#52 The Road by Cormac McCarthy
#54 The Plot Against America by Philip Roth
#72 The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
#76 The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
