Vote for him too over on the list Greatest English Language Poets - he is THE BEST and defined modernism in English
He captures your attention and makes you want to finish the book as soon as you start reading. He keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time.V 2 Comments
Why is he so behind in this list! I love all of Sidney Sheldon's books.
How can he not be on the entire list? Bloodline, If tomorrow comes, The sky is falling, Memories of midnight... his thirllers' are absolutely amazing!V 2 Comments
I could see him being behind Steven Tyler if this were a list of best rock singers. I didn't really dig Faulkner's latest album. Sadly, like most Top Ten lists, this list is a sad joke.
It's appalling he's not higher on this list.
The Sound and the Fury, As I Lay Dying, A Light in August, Absalom, Absalom!
He was a master of prose and the human condition. A hard read but always worth it. He's the type of writer that hits you while you're taking a piss halfway through a book, that rare moment only the best can provide.
The Author of Jack Reacher!
I think David baldacci deserves to be on the list
Extremely underrated, H. G. Wells should be second - CaptainComedy17
Le Guin is one of the greatest sci fi authors ever been and she wrote fantasy too. Her style is so deep, her world is very realistic for non-realism fiction, but still very interesting.V 1 Comment
A great author who won a nobel prize and he's not even in the top 100, that just doesn't seem right
I'm Turkish too-like him- but he is not really good I'm getting bored in most of his books. Don't be angry I'm being realistic.V 2 Comments
As far as sci-fi goes, he is the best. I've read 2001, 2010, 2061, 3001, Rendez vous with Rama, Rama II, The Garden of Rama, Rama Revealed, Time's Eye, Sunstone, First Born, Childhood's End, The Songs of Distant Earth, Cradle, The Ghost from the Grand Banks, The Hammer of God, The Light of Other Days and many of his short stories and they were all fantastic. He develops his characters and stories like no other.V 1 Comment
But... He's number one. Alice?V 1 Comment
Should be a lot higher up. 'The Unbearable Lightness of Being' (forget the movie-adaptation) and my favourite 'Laughable Loves' are works of pure genius.

Come on! Don't be so dumb... He doesn't desreve 85 at all with his children of the lamp!V 1 Comment
