Top Ten Best Books of All Time


The Contenders: Page 4

61 The Green Mile - Stephen King
62 The Zombie Chasers - John Kloepfer
63 The Count of Monte Cristo - Alexandre Dumas

This book is by far one of the best books I've ever read. There's several plot twists every few pages, events intertwined so perfectly, and the Count of Monte Cristo plotting everybody's every last move.

To read the entire story is to be immersed into a world unlike any other novel. This is a story of revenge, passion, culture, sophistication.The depth of each character and the development of each subplot could be a story by itself. This is undoubtedly the finest novel ever written

This books deserves a much higher spot

Simply the best book. It has so much emotion and power.
The Hunger Games is just so sick.

64 Paper Towns - John Green

It's a mix of humor, sadness and a bit of excitement, and It's just a great book period. I don't really see perfect piece of writing anymore. But this is an exception.

P.S. If you can think of a better book reply the title to me in the reply section! Thank you

A great book with many sad but real truths, I love this book a lot!

It explores the adventure of life and the delusion we trap ourselves in into one beautiful novel. And it's John Green whose daughter was named by Barak Obama. Does anything else need to be said here?

love it

65 The Little Prince - Saint Exupery

Okay. I've never thought I would get angry over a list but here I'm, beating myself not to swear or write in big puntos. I can't believe how this world is so full of "lame" people. You heard that right, the stupid teen girl who voted for typical popular culture books, you are so lame that it hurts to live in the same planet as you. Now go swoon over some celebrity and do not read this awesome book because it's probably too good for you.

It's the only book he wrote and it's absolutely beautiful

66 Eragon - Christopher Paolini

It is the best book I have ever read, I waited 5 whole years for the forth book. I read in just one day and at the end I couldn't stop crying.

Number 4 just came out and I finished it the next day. Kind of a sad ending though - CBro7

What is wrong with society? Inheritance isn't even on the List. That is so much better than lord of the rings and Harry potter. And DIVERGENT? Why is that even on this list? Divergent is so bad it makes moby dick look good - Biggyepicness

You can say this book is better than Harry Potter. It is definitely not as good as lord of the rings. I seriously doubt you have read lord of the rings. It has more of a story than anything on this list. It has been well known for a very long time and defined the fantasy genre. I agree that divergent is a bad book. This book isn't as good as lord of the rings.

WHY IS THIS SO LOW? I honestly think this is the best book/series ever, interesting and awesome characters, great plot, amazing setting, I could go on and on really.

69 One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest - Ken Kesey

I can't believe this book isn't higher on the list. It's a modern day masterpiece! It has the most shocking and amazing closing in any book I have ever read. This book manages to have extremely layered characters that you both love in hate in the only 200 or so pages of its contents. This book changed my life. - TuckerTheFrog

70 Wonder - R.J.Palacio

See, now this is one of those modern day books that are so good that it deserves to be somewhere in the top 30s. Maybe even lower. It's a wonderful story that shouldn't be overshadowed by the god dang HUNGER GAMES. Really? You want to read a good story? Drop The Fault in our Stars, and read this.

This book is just perfect, exciting, funny and moving. Stuff Harry Potter (which I somehow find boring respect my opinion) get this book to the top of the list! - KingFab

Read this book and it is amazing. It is probably my favorite book I have ever read. - purplemonkeydishwasher69

Great book I would read it million times

71 The Adventures of Tom Sawyer - Mark Twain

So great for kid aNd adults and teaches them to love to read and get active and have adventures and have fun in life because it is motorised and I bet tom fellas the. Same way but just keep your limits which is A. Flaw that tom has

The entire book was great. Mark Twain expressed all those scenes in a very creative manner and moreover that accent! The plot takes pride in simple things of life and it shows that sometimes mischief can earn you a treasure. Lol. - LightningBlade

I love this book. I read this for school because I needed to read a classic novel and I absoloutely loved it!

72 And Then There Were None - Agatha Christie

It is evident that most of the people who voted above me do not understand what real literature is. Divergent!? Maze Runner? REALLY?
Anyone could have written those books. The fault in our stars fair enough, that actually took some high literal capacity and emotion. Books like divergent and maze runner are hardly proper really books, people need to read some Agatha Christie or at least legendary books that we will be talking about for years to come, not silly books about post apocalypse or whatever. And I know what I'm talking about because I've read them.
Aside from that, And Then There Were None is amazing. I finished it in one day because I just couldn't put it down. It builds suspense like I have never seen before, with a totally ingenious ending. This should at least be in the top 20.

I hate feeling scared, and tend to avoid horror movies and creepy books. However, this book was the only time when I actually enjoyed the sheer spookiness of a work of fiction, and it kept me engaged and guessing all the way to the end. Christie is an amazing author. - Knucklewood

So good! Read it in 3 days! All you want to do is keep turning the page! So shocking. Agathe Christie did a fantabulous job of writing it! Will recommend to everyone! MUST READ!

To the dumb 11-13 year olds reading diary of a wimpy kid tom gates and god knows what else read this it's a proper book

75 White Fang - Jack London

I love the book, but despise the authors views

Another classic boy tale

76 Jane Eyre - Charlotte Brontë

This book should be among top 3. it's an amazing book. FOR ME NOTHING IS BETTER THAN JANE EYRE. It's the best book ever.

Best literature book ever.

77 Romeo & Juliet - William Shakespeare V 1 Comment
78 Anathem - Neal Stephenson

A book set in a community of 'monks' which discusses the minutiae in detail does not sound like a good read (A bit like 'A Canticle for Leibowitz' which really is a turgid religious nonsense) but this book is exciting from the word go. To be submerged so completely in the lives of people who spend every waking moment thinking and working on maths and philosophy is like stepping into a magical kingdom. Then around page 300 or so it really takes off into the unknown where these 'nerds' are let loose on an vaguely earthlike planet to commence high adventure. And because they are learned and disciplined handle all these with aplomb. Terrific storytelling and brilliantly identifiable characters coupled with vivacious philosophy, maths and quantum speculation make this book amazing. I could not put it down except to declare to anyone and everyone its magnificence.

Read this book, you will not be disapointed. - egfmackenzie

79 Watchmen - Alan Moore

I'm not a reader but I do enjoy many comics and graphic novels. Watchmen is my all time favorite - Jonerman

80 Artemis Fowl - Eoin Colfer

What a fun read. I love the characters and the concept. Personally, I preferred the Eternity Code as the best in the series, but the first one is the most original and I guess it deserves the higher spot. - Knucklewood

If all the people who voted actually had read Artemis Fowl, things would be a lot different. Artemis Fowl has an ingenious plot filled with twists and turns.

Oh I wished so much this was second! After the Bible, of course! - keyson

They need to make a movie already! - HeavyDonkeyKong
