A meme reboot from February 2015: Pick a book published since 2000 and say why you think it will be considered as a “classic” in the future.
I don’t think I answered this the first time, so...
Reading mostly classics, I don’t read many published since 2000 – exactly one in fact in the first 70 of 100. And then of course, it’s already considered a classic. So it’s the obvious choice, but a worthy one regardless.
Atonement by Ian McEwan. The “why?” is simple. It’s superbly written, with a compelling theme, and believable characters.
Now that I’ve been faithful to the precise rules of this meme, I’m going to cheat a little and mention one other that comes close: American Pastoral by Philip Roth, published 1997.
