50 Essential Cult Novels

50 Essential Cult Novels… How many have you read?

Flavorwire

Just what is a cult novel? Well, like so many literary terms, the edges blur whenever you try to look right at them, but in the end, you sort of know one when you read one. Sometimes a cult novel is one that the critics panned but the fans love, or sometimes it’s one that both readers and critics love, but a certain contingent of readers really love.

Blue pill or red pill, the question strikes again…
