Best Novels of All Timebooklover1
The Top Ten
I loved this book. It hit home. I think it would for any young person, struggling to find his compass in life. I also found it deeply, emotional. Particularly, as the protagonist reveals his loving connection to his youngest sibling. It's a book I read at least once every few years. It, strangely enough, realigns my compass. As both a writer, and a person.
A brilliant story illustrating the struggles of being a young adult and losing innocence as you grow up.
A modern classic.

This novel is one of the classics and will remain so for a long long time. It has all the elements in the right proportion. Love, happiness, grief, loss, tragedy... Its a novel you can read 10 times and find something new on the 11th read.
The Lord of the Rings trilogy is AMAZING. Also in film, but the film doesn't show some essential parts which the books include. I love them. The father novel of all fantasy.
This book is amazing and anyone that hasen't read it should:) It is filled with fantasy, action, suspence and humor. The ending is sad though.
THIS SERIES PLUS THE HOBBIT IS THE BEST!V 4 Comments
Lucid, simple with engaging characters.. You never get bored of this novel. Ever
Deep and thoughtful... One of the best books ever written
Is still the same thing.
Funny, it was on the top ten boring books as well. who da hell writes these lists? - shadesofcoolblueV 2 Comments
It's the ONLY novel that makes you aware of the chaninigans of any government anywhere. Read it and wake up to a new realization. But it should have been called 2020!
My favourite novel.. Orwell was miles ahead of his time
YES. This novel is AMAZING. It should be in 1st place.
Why is “The Goblet of Fire” on this list?
A well-written dark comedy.
A Fantasticly Written Novel With Tons Of Greatly Developed Charcters. Give It A Read If You Ever Get The Time. - Andrewgregway
This should be #1 this is the greatest book of all time
He is smart like Socrates
What? War and peace below HP and 1984! I have lost faith in humanity.
I’m 13 and I just finished it I almost cried that I had to leave this book
The reason harry potter books are not higher because everyone likes different one mine is goblet of fire because I really reeled foolish when I can't think it could be poly juice potion
How is this not higher up? Seriously...It's amazing and worth reading! If you're a little kid who hasn't read Harry Potter, I urge you to try! I'd be very proud, even if I don't get to see you!
Great and highly adventurous
but Half Blood Prince and Deathly Hallows should also be here
This was one of my favorite books!V 4 Comments
Never read it but heard its one of the greatest novels of all time. I am going to try this novel very soon. - zxm
Really nice historical novel about a boy's life in Afghanistan.
Heart-wrenching all through out.
A painfully beautiful portrayl of
complex human emotions and relations set on the backdrop of war stricken Afghanistan. It emotionally consumed me throughout and how! One of the best reads of all time.
It's not only a novel, but more of creepypasta novel and that's why Wikipedia brought me.
It's about a narrator trying to write to his penpal, but as he grew up the penpal is dead. That cover in the book was the scene where the stalker chased the two main characters.
This book really rocks.
I liked Dacula better but this is still an amazing book
Do you know what I love about this book, the fact that the book never directly tells you there is something wrong with how the pigs are running the farm. You are able to draw your own conclusions from the facts given. I also like how everything the pigs do is the direct opposite of what Big Major wanted, spreading the rebellion, be free, overtake humans, don't act like humans. Although this is not my favorite book (that goes to Fahrenheit 451) it's probably my second with The Book Theif and The Miraculous Adventures of Edward Tulane close behind it.
A genius allegorical and satirical novel about the Russian Revolution and the Soviet Union. It's an amazing work of art that also tells one of the greatest tales of the downfall of a civilization.
I don't read novels often, cause I'm not a fan of reading novels, but this is a really good one. Deep, meaningful. You want to see what happens next, but the ending will paralyze you. - MaxPap

This is such a good book. Certainly worthy of number 8. Personally I think it should be second. Of course my favorite is Pride and prejudice, but TLOTR is a great novel too. But this is so vivid in the description of characters, and has such sophisticated humor and dialogue. What a good book and sweet story, but also teaches a good lesson.
Every time I read it I can't stop myself from smiling...
The most heartbreaking story ever told, and possibly the best story ever told
A cool book to read
Such an elegant and beautifully written book...so much better than Stargirl, which is currently the next book on this list.
This one truly changed my life... The things like "omerta" n lolyalty were taught to me by the godfather...
Pick up this book if you love mysteries and murder... The best Agatha Christie novel out there
Fyodor stands out as the best author ever, and this (in my opinion) is his most awesome book, but also read The Kamaroz brothers, but read this first
Best book ever writen.shame on you
It's 1150-1400 pages depending on your copy, and I genuinely wish King would've added 200-300 pages on Las Vegas. Fantastic characters, great antagonist and a great premise/setting. The ending was very disappointing and predictable, but it's not a King book if doesn't have masterful story telling with a terrible ending!
This novel is amazing. Full of emotions and its almost like a journey. The ending is perfect. I've read it multiple times because its relatively compact than other novels on this list.
The best book ever! Vote
I just couldn't put it down, when I began reading it!
Please follow your personal legend. Reading this book will change your perception of spirituality and love...
About dreams and destiny... it's the best I've read yet. also its short
It creates a deep feeling of chasing ones dreams...ignites that spark on you to go behind it..
Jane Eyre should be number one. I've never read the Harry Potter series, or the Kite Runner. I absolutely HATED reading Pride and Prejudice because nothing that interesting ever really happened. Besides, the theme of Pride and Prejudice was so cliché and boring! Jane Austen was a good writer, but in my opinion her story-telling lacked conviction and action. I have read To Kill a Mockingbird and The Catcher in the Rye, and I enjoyed them because they brought me back to childhood, and made me think of some historical issues (To Kill a Mockingbird). However, none of those novels compare to Charlotte Brontë's, Jane Eyre. Jane Eyre is my favorite novel because I love the heroine. She's intelligent, independent, moral, strong-willed, self-respecting, and passionate. Jane Eyre is the perfect role-model for any young woman. I also had a crush on the dark, brooding, yet charming Mr. Edward Fairfax Rochester, but I admire Jane for not being willing to compromise who she is to be with him. ...more
It's a great novel, a masterpiece
Hunger games is an amazing and unique book, it should not be 26 it should be number 1!
I love hunger games almost as much as I love divergent so to be honest those probally two of the best books there are I also like if I stay six months later and more
Irony, it's a book about burning books based on books. This book roasted other books as well.
My favourite book ever defiantly read if you have the chance
The best look into the mind of a phycopath
Scarlet and Reth, they were great
