List: Top Ten Most Loved Novels According to the British Public

Date: April 2003

Source: BBC 'Big Read' survey

Base: Approximately 750,000 votes were cast.

Notes: Only one non-British author (Harper Lee - To Kill A Mocking Bird) makes the list. Tolkien's number one position was no doubt influenced by the fact that the film was out that year (2003). To see the top 100 list click Here
