I'd say for me it's a tie between George RR Martin and JRR Tolkien.
What are yours?
That's a pretty tough question, I'm not sure I have one true favourite author. There are some historically good authors like Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Oscar Wilde, Dostoyevsky, Dickens, and so on, but I also don't mind a good Stephen King.
My favourite modern day author, though, has to be Markus Zusak. The Book Theif was an awesome book, an absolute must read.
I read the Book Thief for a school report loved it!
Great one to pick for a book report
Book author? Gee um I don't really read books and when I do, I don't pay attention to who wrote it. But I liked Holes I think it's by a guy named Louis
Holes was good. I only saw the movie though lol I was too lazy to read the book.
I hate shakespeare, pisses me off and so many plot holes!!
Shakespeare just confuses the shit out of me lol.
I always try to avoid movies that I've read the book version of. Makes it really frustrating because you know the story, but then the story skips some major plot points to make it a nice, quick movie. I did that with Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit trilogy and The Book Thief...really irritating .
Despite that, the LotR and Hobbit movies were still worth watching despite knowing what would happen. I never did see the Book Thief movie though. Is it any good?
Oh yeah, they were fantastic movies, but it was irritating when you came to plot points that were overlooked, or parts that were fleshed out way more than they actually are in the books (or the fact that they made 3 hobbit films out of a very small single book...). Still good, but they have those moments that makes you wish you hadn't read the books first.
The Book Thief was a bit odd as a movie. It was decent, but it felt like a different story. Had a lot of the same events, but when compared to the book, it felt like two different stories overall. Worth a watch, at the very least.
Thanks I'll probably check if the Book Thief is on Netflix. I'll probably read it once again so I remember the story a bit more. The Hobbit movies were also BS with their stupid making it into a trilogy... I was pretty pissed off
It's hilarious to see how much they fleshed out the Hobbit stories, really added in a ton of extra content . There were still entertaining, though.
Really? I liked Shakespeare. I was the only one to understand it but it was good.
I read the I am Number Four series (phenomenal series if you haven't read it) then I saw the movie and it was like the expression Tomayto-Tomahto except this time it was.. Tomayto-Lettuce...
I understand it, just so many plot holes.
It's unfortunate, but it definitely happens
I'd have to say James Patterson, I have yet to found a book of his that I didn't like. There were a few questionable ones, but I still enjoyed them.
Steinbeck is solid. But I gotta give it to Jeff Kinney. He is an awesome author and his books are pretty much the only ones I read without being forced
I'll have to go with George R.R. Martin, personally.
