Top Ten Best Books of All Time


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs

Please vote for this. I was gripped from start to finish and it was one of the most emotional books I've ever read.

It's a really good book

This trilogy made me forget about every other book series once I finished just the first book.This book combines REAL pictures with the story which makes the story feel real and also easy to follow along.This book also made me think a lot deeper when facing people with extraordinary talents,or maybe mistaken as mentally ill? The characters in the book are also very loveable and have all sorts of personalities:positive,cheerful,funny,witty,clever,sarcastic and lots more! I recommend this book to everyone-you will not regret reading this series!

62 Cujo - Stephen King
63 War and Peace - Leo Tolstoy

This list is absolutely ridiculous. This is book is among humanity's greatest artistic achievements, and it's placed at 106, 100 places below Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I'm sad.

Lev Tolstoy is the russian Socrates

Reading it now and it is amazing with a beautifully written plot needs to be higher up it should be like 4 or 5 not 52

Below Diary of A Wimpy Kid. Blasphemous. Do not trust this website full of airheads.

64 Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life - James Patterson

This book is my Favorite. - funnyuser

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 The Green Mile - Stephen King
67 The Zombie Chasers - John Kloepfer
68 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.

69 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.

70 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?

71 Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card V 2 Comments
72 Maniac Magee - Jerry Spinelli
73 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

74 Asylum - Madeleine Roux
75 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

I love this book it's so moving

i dare you NOT to fall in love with August!

76 Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules - Jeff Kinney V 1 Comment
77 White Fang - Jack London

I love the book, but despise the authors views

Another classic boy tale

78 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.

79 The Slayer Chronicles: First Kill - Heather Brewer
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
