Strindberg is perhaps the a'writer that uses the most different words.
He has a very special talent to describe situations and things.
Author of the best selling humorous "Just" series and the "Bum" series
What the how is he here he is the best. I can't believe that roald dahl is before him
He is the best! Especially in the "Just" and "Treehouse" series! - micahisthebestV 1 Comment
The most honest writer to ever live. Ham on Rye is the greatest American novel of all time. He deserves to be at the top of this list for that alone, add on his other novels, his poetry, and his huge influence and it's a no-contest.
Brutal, terrifying, tragic, yet hilarious honesty.
Certainly one of the most enjoyable writers.
Just started reading Ham on Rye. Great, so far. - Alpha101
Vonnegut is the funniest and most accurate writer I've ever read. *Slaughterhouse 5* and *Breakfast of Champions* are modern classics, and rightfully so.
An author who teaches us how to laugh at ourselves. Beautiful, ugly humanity runs through his work like a river. He demands to be read.
The author of the Don Quijote should be considered as one of the most influential writers ever.

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
