Top Ten Greatest Authorscelynwelshy
The Contenders: Page 10
Really? She doesn't feature in the top ten. She can construct some strong characters who will never weather. She herself was a great philosopher and strong willed woman. Atlas Shrugged is one of the best books written ever.
Her philosophy has its critics - but no one can deny that she has written some masterpieces - Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead are classics in their own rights.
If more people read her books, she would have been number one.
Simple-minded hypocrite who has corrupted many other simple minds.V 1 Comment
A lot of people don't know that Who Framed Roger Rabbit was based on a comic noir novel called Who Censored Roger Rabbit. Fair enough I'm not sure Gary K. Wolf wrote it with Bugs Bunny and Mickey Mouse in mind.V 1 Comment
If you want to know real Egypt read his stories
I think Clancy has too many three-syllable words in his books for the people who vote here.
REALLY? Number 195? Who even reads anymore if they don't read clancy?V 1 Comment
It is an offense against nature to have Roth, Brown, and Paolini in the top fifty but not to have Woolf on the list at all. Mrs Dalloway is a masterpiece of modernist fiction.
Why is she so low? How can she be lower than Paulo Coelho, Dan Brown and Steven Tyler? She deserves to be at least in the top 100, it's contra natura that the author of Mrs Dalloway, Orlando and The waves... This is the definition of malum in se.
Catcher in the Rye One of impressive novel of all time
Why is he #295? He's easily in the top 20, at least! - Alpha101
Why is Astrid way down here? She deserves to be in Top 20, at least! - Svampbob164
Best Childrens author ever
Mr. Ballard touched science fiction... perverted it into some new and bizarre creature that is on par, intellectually, with literary fiction. There are a lot of authors who are responsible for turning the science fiction ghetto into something that could be taken seriously as an art form: Vonnegut, Ellison, Dick, etc. but I believe that Ballard has done it best. - airbb
He also did the character designs for Chrono Trigger, a video game for Super Nintendo, in 1995. - monsterhigh200
He's the best existential writer. Period.
How can you miss out on this nobel winning literary genius! Siddartha, Steppenwolf, Narcissus and Goldmund, Demian! Each book is a masterpiece itself! He deserves to be in top 20 at least!
Terrible writer and eats baby greek children for breakfast
The Nate comic series is very good, kinda like Diary of a Wimpy Kid. - Awesomelionking10V 3 Comments
