Top Ten Fantasy Books of All Time
The Top Ten
Although the Lord of the Rings is my Favourite Book of all time, I voted for the Hobbit for the memories it gave me as a child (and nostalgia upon multiple re-reads! ). Simply, no book has ever matched the feeling of adventure in this (mostly) light hearted standalone masterpiece. This book is timeless.
This book is my favorite I can read it over and over again it gave me so much memories and the movies are the best
This should be #2
The Lord Of The Rings is a masterpiece; rarely do I use that term. As others have said, this wasn't the first high fantasy book ever written, but it's impact on popular culture was such that it's often regarded as such. Few books have left a lasting impression on me; the story, the characters and the underlying sadness - it's simply one of the greatest stories ever written in my opinion.
Where the heck is the rest of the series? They should easily take up the top three spots with The Hobbit as number 4!
This book didn't start the whole fantasy genre. Don't be mislead. There were other books, stories and authors before. Its not the first and its not the best. Jackson-Movies marketing-propaganda made them first and best, what is of course not truth
This book started the whole fantasy genre. It is the top in plot crafting, and the use of language is beautiful. A great book!
It should be below the Hobbit.
I love this book!
Best of all time!
You're a wizard Harry
Nice set of books, but way too childish and predictable to be on the same scale of some of the real greats
How the hell is this not higher on the list?
WHY IS THIS NOT TOP 3?!?!? Percy Jackson should not be 11th.
It is the best
This should be way higher along with a storm of swords which is the best of the series
I love it I also love his dark matareals
Not quite The Lord of the Rings, but well written and plenty of action. I liked most of the character and found it to be a fun book. Well worth reading.
After Lord of the Rings, likely the best.
Seriously the best book series ever, although the last book are yet to be published. The character and world building are perfect, the story is beautiful, and it will make you weep and laugh.
This is such a good book series. I love it. I love the way the author writes these books. It doesn't even matter that both of the books are thick, because you just disappear into the story and Kvothe's life. I don't understand why people don't like this more. It has mystery, fantasy, life and everything.
