Top Ten Greatest Authors


The Contenders: Page 14

261 Amish Tripathi

Chetan Bhagat was ruling the Indian industry with his decent novels for 8 long years. Then came he. the greatest of the writers with his awe inspiring novels, THE SHIV TRILOGY. All his books are noe the most sold English books in the history of India. Second part 'THE SECRET OF NAGAS' is my personal favr8. therest are als great 'THE IMMORTALS OF MELUHA' and 'THE OATH OF VAYUPUTRAS'. He is called the 'Indian Rowling'. He also broke the record of J.K. rowling of most rejections.

262 Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Three things:

1. ) His epic poem titled "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" was written in 1798 while he was on opium. That in itself is impressive.

2. ) Despite its trippy origins, "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" is probably his best work.

3. ) In 1984 The hard rock/metal group "Iron Maiden" released a metal a ballad by the same title that summarizes "Rime of the Ancient Mariner." So "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" It was a musical hit 282 years after Coleridge wrote it.

Just please don't list Iron Maiden as a great author. The people on this site would probably put them in the top ten.
