I have read all the books on that list. Lord of the Rings was not a childrens book. I could barely read it as an adult because it took 4 chapters for the hobbits to get to the top of the mountain. Very tedious writing. But I loved the Hobbit and all the other books on the list.

CS Lewis had some really good sci fi novels too.

Charles ****ens had some great novels too, my favorite was Great Expectations.

I thought JK Rowling was a hack but her writing got better with each book, and I did love the story.

All the fariy tales and all the mythology was my favorite when I was a teen ager.

My guess is that the Grimm brothers were Christian. Not sure why but I find 'Fairy Tales' and Christianity synonymous.
