I thought it would be interesting to see how people rate the different adventures and what people like best. Whether some people prefer certain types of adventures.

Let's see what you all think!

PS. Please don't turn this into a comments thread on other peoples choices.
PPS. I added Lake of Sharks as an afterthought and also because I wanted to give something a 1.

It is indeed close at the top.
Calculus Affair is a point ahead of Tibet, then Blue Lotus, then Black Island and Prisoners in joint fourth place.

Lake of Sharks is last, but a few people chose not to vote for it; then Alph-Art and Soviets tie at second to last.

The biggest surprise to me is that Ottokar is currently tied with Flight 714 as joint sixth...

Maybe a cut-off point should be set and after this the totals for each book totted up to produce a 'definitive ranking' kinda thing?!

Yes, or I could edit the first post with a running update of the totals so far.
