Interesting that only half know Louis L'Amour and Zane Grey's genre. I've known those since I was a kid, though a rural South Dakota upbringing will do that I guess.

Insert the standard, "it's an American website with questions written in English. Hard to believe that it caters to primarily Americans, You're free to create your own". That said there my initial count has 9 questions based on American authors and 10 from the British Isles. Seems too anglocentric to me.

I would argue about watership down being a children's novel. I first read it in my forties. Very interesting allegory although I understand the story was derived from tales the author told his children

I was thinking the same thing. It didn't seem like a children's novel to me even though it is fantasy adventure. Fantastic book, though.
