Top Ten Best Books of All Time


The Contenders: Page 17

321 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

322 The Boy in the Striped Pajamas - John Boyne

Such a sad, yet good, book - shawnmccaul22

323 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.

324 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

325 Dragon Ball Z, Vol. 1
326 Naruto Box Set 2: Volumes 28-48 with Premium
327 A Shore Thing - Snooki V 1 Comment
328 Stargirl - Jerry Spinelli

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

329 The Stranger - Albert Camus
330 On the Road - Jack Kerouac

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

331 One Hundred Years of Solitude - Gabriel García Márquez
332 Me and Earl and the Dying Girl - Jesse Andrews
333 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

334 The God Delusion - Richard Dawkins

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

335 Bud, Not Buddy - Christopher Paul Curtis
336 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.

337 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

338 The Scarlet Pimpernel - Emma Orczy

This was the story that became the inspiration for the Zorro and Batman characters. Essentially a superhero story set during the French Revolution. Well I guess it takes balls to rescue French people from Madame la Guillotine

The recent trailer for Assassin's Creed Unity has simmilarities with this story (Main character rescues innocent from the clutches of the guillotine)

339 Dork Diaries - Rachel Renee Russell V 2 Comments
340 City of Glass - Cassandra Clare

Why is this so far down on the list?! It's a brilliant, witty, well-written book that deserves more popularity! The characters are amazing and the storyline is absolutely awesome! If you haven't read this book series I highly recommend that you do so, and quickly!

This is so awesome
