Top Ten Best Books of All Time


The Contenders: Page 5

81 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

82 Star Wars: The Wrath of Darth Maul - Ryder Windham
83 Watchmen - Alan Moore

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

84 The Da Vinci Code - Dan Brown

the greatest book I'v ever read. Dan Brown has writtin a masterpiece. should be number one.

Wow, I've recently read this book and it was so amazing, it became my favorite book instantly. I wasn't expecting to see it on this list! There are so much haters of this book which is very sad...
It's so much better than the Bible (which I don't believe in). This is my NUMBER ONE!

Dan Brown is a marginally talented author at best. He writes thinly veiled pablum designed to appeal to the most broad audience possible. The the Vinci Code is the best example of this. - Jdub2119

A masterpiece by Dan Brown - Zab

88 The Snows of Kiliminjaro - Ernest Hemingway
89 Sharp Objects
90 The Golden Compass - Philip Pullman

This book - no, this series in general - is so deep, though provoking, complex, and well-written. A modern masterpiece. Its controversial, sure, but most great things are. The Amber Spyglass is the best in the series but I'm voting for this because it's what my at people know and it's more likely to make it to the top ten, where it belongs.

It certainly gets you thinking and is much deeper than just the plot. A great reflection on religion, society, and humans themselves. The setting is one of the most imaginative ever, and deserves to be read if for that only!

This is my favourite book ever!
Oh and also, the name is 'Northern Lights'. Read this book! Read the next two! It changed my life, it will change your life too. When I finished this book, I turned it over, and started again! LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT! VOTE PEOPLE VOTE NOW!

I read this book only recently. - LightningBlade

91 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!

92 The Book of Mormon V 1 Comment
93 The Silmarillion - J.R.R. Tolkien

My favorite Novel of all time.

94 Jurassic Park: A Novel

It's a good book but he only one I've read where I thought the movie was better. One of my favorite movies, book was okay - Username123

95 From the Corner of His Eye - Dean Koontz

This novel confirms my belief that nothing is without purpose. The world and everyone and everything in it exist for reasons beyond our comprehension. We live in the 'natural' where theories are based on verifiable facts. The book brings enlightenment to worlds, events, people that connect and inter-connect in ways often viewed as supernatural. I'm positive the author recognized his novel as being no coincidence. It was meant to be just as he was meant to create it.

Dean Koontz is my favorite author - AgentofAnarchy

96 A Wrinkle in Time - Madeleine L'Engle

How was this not on this list before? HOW IS DIARY OF A WIMPY KID 7?!? 🤦🏼‍♀️ - ExplosivePanther

97 Beloved - Toni Morrison
98 Robopocalypse - Daniel H. Wilson

The title of this book is badass

99 The Boy at the End of the World
100 American Psycho

Tough read, but a scathing attack on materialism.
