Who is your favorite author?

I like Alice Hoffman.

Janet, 46
E. Brunswick, NJ USA

It changes a lot - right now I'm veering between Angela Carter and Fyodor Dostoevsky.

James Herriot -- he wrote the "All Creatures Great and Small" books.

Laura, 39
Lowell, MA USA

I love John Irving, Barbara Kingsolver and Neil Gaimen.


John Saul, also like Beverly Lewis a lot

Melodi, 19
Gahanna, OH USA

Richard Bach

I love the book "One". It's the only one of his books I have read, but I just love it so much. My other favourite is J.R.R Tolkein because I love "The Lord Of The Rings".

I can't pick just one. Angela Thirkell, Anne McCaffery, David McCullough and an assortment of mystery writers. The one common element is that without respect to genre they have the
ability to have you accept the time and place of which they write as a real world with real people.

John Fischer

Of late I appreciate the care and craft that John Irving puts into his work. Short stories by Alice Munro and TC Boyle als orange up there.

Felicia, 38
Lowell, MA USA

I've been reading a lot of Vonnegut lately but I think my favorite is still Twain.

Alias Irrelevante

Alice Munro

Lowell, MA USA

My favorite author is Jennifer Roberson. She wrote the Del and Tiger series and the Chronicles of the Cheysuli series. Her characters are interesting - they grow throughout the story. The worlds she creates capture my interest and the plots of the stories are unpredictable without being unbelievable.

Cathie, 54
Novi, MI USA

I pick my reading according to my mood.

Jill, 61
Saylorsburg, PA USA

All time, no contest, it is Homer. My favorite current author is Terry Goodkind. Special props go out to J.D. Sallinger, Tolkien, Herodotus, Plutarch, Ceaser, and Arrian. Also, Virgil is a pretty hep cat too.

Frodo, 32
The Shire

Terry Pratchett is the author who's books I own most of... (nearly all of them in fact). I also re-read his books over and over again. I don't know if he'd count as my favourite though. There are lots of books that are the only one the author wrote, or the only one of theirs I've read, which I love to bits... Neil Gaiman, James Bibby, Jane Austen, Stella Gibbons... My favourite also tends to change depending on what I've been reading recently. I suppose I don't really have a particular favourite - will I don't know do?

Probably Philip Pullman, but there are so many I love!
