Swan Song kicks it, Beave.

Your list all looks good, but Swan Song's the only one I've read yet. I plan on reading Count of Monte Cristo and Fight Club at some point though.

Thanks Mutley. I've read Count of Monte Cristo twice already. It's probably my favorite book. I want to get this translation because I've heard good things about it.
