Top Ten Fantasy Books of All Time
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.
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!
No, this needs to be higher than The Hunger Games. I love The Hunger Games Books, but they can't beat The Lord of the Rings
Probably my #1, because it's such a classic fairy tale.
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 should be #2
One of many classics, still deserves a high spot on the list.
An absolute classic, everyone knows this story.
This book should be ahead of, "Fellowship of the Ring"
A great conclusion to the Harry Potter series.
Best book ever! So creative and unique.
It should be below the Hobbit.
This should be way higher along with a storm of swords which is the best of the series
Seeing as it caused the greatest fantasy TV Show of all time, it should be higher.
How the hell is this not higher on the list?
A great start to an underrated series.
It is the best
Started what's arguably the most famous book series of all time.
A true classic.
I love it I also love his dark matareals
Created an incredible anime movie.
Great series, really authentic.
