Tor top 50 novels - which have you read?

Another books read meme: Tor.com have been conducting an online poll on the best sf/f novel of the last decade. I was slightly surprised to see it won by a book which I do not rate that highly myself, but anyway it gives me the material for another books meme, using the 50 books which got 51 or more votes. As usual, bold the ones you have read, italicise those you have started but not finished, and strike through those you didn't like.
