I loved the young lad with the basketball you see when you press the 'bestseller' button :)

I liked the one about unreliable narrators (which I am a fan of) though it didn't mention the single greatest (IMHO) of all time...

Bertie Wooster :)

I love Bertie Wooster's narrative voice, but I would say he was more hopeless than unreliable :)

Six and two threes, maybe - the thing I love it, Bertie does tell the reader everything we need, but in such a beautifully scatty, ridiculous and entrancingly skewed-simile way that we're completely in the sound and shape of it and the mental pictures he conjures up...

And on another point, when she wanted to do it right... Christie. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. Hell, I still remember the first time I read it, and sat down and immediately reread the whole thing just to see how she did it. Though that wasn't so much characterisation (which was NOT her strong suit) but the sheer cleverness of the way the narrator gave us the clues.
