The Contenders: Page 9
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.
Author of the best selling "Shadow Children Series"V 1 Comment
Come on! Don't be so dumb... He doesn't desreve 85 at all with his children of the lamp!V 1 Comment
Love this author so much! Went to World Book Day show today, met her and got a book signed. She is such a lovely person, so kind and loves wearing Tom Gates high heels.
Brilliant books. Although they're not as well-known as DOAWK and DD, these books will become classics.
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.
How was he not already on the list?!
Well, I guess that he only writes in poem might put some people off. There are lots of good writers out there, so it's not a surprise so many good ones haven't gotten higher up.
Wuthering heights is depressing. Talented. - Eil__een
I love this author his my weird school books are so funny I would recommend them Murphy 6
I'm just voting for him because I know the guy.
Only the guy who inspired modern space exploration...
I like him because not just because he is an author, but that he is a songwriter and a rockstar legend. Also he has been to places that we could only imagine to go to. He is a writer that listens with his ears and he also feels with all of his senses not with just one like how most of the other writers do. So overall he is a great writer and cares about others. But lives a double life as a rockstar legend. And that is why I want him to be first. I also think that he is a great role model for other young people in the world because of his life before he became noticed.
I read his book 'Does the Noise in My Head Bother You? ' and I loved it. It's based on his own life as a musician and I found out things I never knew before.
I love him because of his musical history and his book "Does the noise in my head bother you". I like the book because of the feelings that he uses.
Steven Tyler a great author? Oh good grief. Where are Harper Lee and Mitch Albom, in your best rock singers list? I'm surprised that Evancho chick isn't on this list.V 2 Comments
