Top Ten Best Books of All Time


The Contenders: Page 16

301 Alex Rider Series

What this should be way higher

What the heck is Alex Rider doing in sopt No.305... If the stupid hunger games series can be third, then Alex Rider can be the greatest book in the entire universe

302 The Boy in the Striped Pajamas - John Boyne

Such a sad, yet good, book - shawnmccaul22

303 Faust - Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Goethe's dark take on the Doctor Faustus tale is propably the best known and most important piece of German literature, both as a stage play and in book form, but even without its status, this just has so much to offer; and Goethe's works never shied away from touchy topics, in this case most of all suicidal thoughts and existential crisis, but also religion. Also: several quotes from the book are turned to everyday German phrases. - Martin_Canine

This book is so amazing even though its old and not as easy to understand, I reccomend you give it a shot! I'm reading it at the mountain and its pure poetry!

304 The Divine Comedy - Dante Alighieri

Can't believe how low this is on the list. Sure, blockbuster books are way better than the basis of literature in Europe, the creator of the concept of heaven and hell and the master of mathematics & poetry.

Only the works of J.R.R. tolkien himself can match the poetic genius of Dante!

From his spiritual journey through Hell, Purgatory and Heaven, it really is a must-read!

Medieval literature at its very best!

The 9 circles of hell show justice that not all sinners are placed together. Some sins are worse than others.

305 Life of Pi - Yann Martel

Love it! I read it, was devastated. Turned the last page, and started it again!

An outstanding book, one of my favourites. It really puts the world into perspective. - Dylaphant

306 Star Wars: The Wrath of Darth Maul - Ryder Windham
307 Ready Player One - Ernest Cline

This is a great, action-packed book with adventure and mystery and all sorts of cool stuff. Also, if you like '80s references, mystery, fantasy, adventure, arcade games, dystopian worlds, futuristic technology, or even just a plain-old good read, then I highly recommend this book to you. Even if you don't like any of those things, or even if you absolutely HATE any of those things, I'd still recommend this book, because the genius behind it makes anything that might tick you off about it seem unimportant. It'
S a great read, so do me a personal favor, and try it!

Best book ever

308 Dragon Ball Z, Vol. 1
309 Naruto Box Set 2: Volumes 28-48 with Premium

Aside from Proust and Kafka, these books are 100% girly if you ask someone who reads them: Sarah LeBlanc. - kristyrosepetal4

312 The Stranger - Albert Camus
313 On the Road - Jack Kerouac

HOW IS THIS BOOK #585? Jeez, are there no readers voting here?

314 Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - J.K Rowling
315 Me and Earl and the Dying Girl - Jesse Andrews
316 Plum Island - Nelson DeMille

This book, is amazing. I'm just sayin'.

John Corey is probably one of my favorite protagonists in any book I've ever read. Nelson DeMille is a fan-TASTIC author. Definitely worth a read. - A7XFTW

317 The God Delusion - Richard Dawkins

I was an atheist, this book made me a hardcore atheist.

318 Bud, Not Buddy - Christopher Paul Curtis
319 The Communist Manifesto - Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels

Probably the most influential book in history besides The Bible and Qur'an. Even if you don't agree with it, it's ideas are fascinating.

320 Who Censored Roger Rabbit - Gary K. Wolf

This was the story that Hollywood morphed into a feature film with a cartoon rabbit and the late Bob Hoskins
