I like a lot to read, it's one of my favevourite hobbie. And I decided to open this discussion in the subject of reader. What's your favourite writer? What kind of books does he/she write? Your opinion on his best book. And what book would you advise to read. Mine is Robert Jordan. He has written on the subject of high fantasy and his has already passed away, unfortunaly. He has a collection of 12 book, the Wheel of Time and he was one of the creators of Conan. I advise you to read the Wheel of Tme collection. It is very addicting and beautiful. try it

i like to read mostly classic novels. but anything interesting can get my attention. thomas hardy is good. so is henry james, william golding, tolkien, etc. i had fun reading lord of the flies, mayor of casterbridge, sun also rises, flowers in the attic and 4 its sequels, etc. i also like to read psychological novels and adventure novels. Mommie Dearest was an interesting nonfiction book.

Welcome to mylot My favorite author is Evan Hunter, who wrote The Blackboard Jungle and also wrote a whole bunch of police procedural books under the name of Ed McBain known as the 87th Precinct novels. I like mysteries. I've never gotten into science fiction, but if you like it and it gets you to read, then it's a good thing

I also enjoy misteries but I have only tried portuguese ones by Jose Rodrigo dos Santos. They are all historical misteries. Try the wheel of time, it's awesome. If you want more information about it send me a message.

I really like Scott Westerfeld. He wrote the Uglies series, which is one of the best series that I've ever read. He also wrote Peeps and So Yesterday, both of which I really enjoyed. All of his stories are very diverse.

If I had to pick one, it would be Stephen King. However, I prefer his older books to the newer ones. He seems to have moved away from true horror and into other areas. My favorite book was "The Stand." It had an awesome story line, flowed well and kept your interest throughout. Because I am a true horror fan, I have difficulty finding books now that really seem to satisfy me. They are either shallow, as far as the plot/story line go, or don't really give enough of the horror jolt. Recommendations for good smack-you-in-the-face horror books would be appreciated!

My favorite writer is William Shakespeare. I love his tragedies (e.g. Hamlet, Othello, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, and Julius Caesar). I love his blank verse. I love his iambic pentameters. I got my love of writing sonnets from him. Most readers hate his unfamiliar syntax. I find beauty in decoding them. The universal themes in his masterpieces have stayed as fresh as when they were first seen printed through his First Folio. Take away Shakespeare from the world of reading. Can you imagine what books we would be reading now?

Wow. I have so many favourite writers. It is hard to pick just one. I do love Oscar Wilde. I think his enormous personality matched his talent, though I don't know if that is always such a good thing. But that's why I like him.

Currently, I'm into business books like books about Warren Buffet and books that Robert Kiyosaki has written. So my favorite writer would have to be Robert Kiyosaki because his ideas about personal finance really appeal to me. On the other hand, as far as fiction goes, I really like Mitch Albom. The Five People You Meet in heaven and Tuesdays with Morrie made me cry. His books are so full of emotion and love that it is so hard to suppress your feelings while reading. :)
