What are some of your favorite literature/authors? Call me cliche, but I enjoyed Fahrenheit 451, 1984, and Watership down the most. I've also read some graphic novels, however I couldn't remember every one, except this awesome adaptation for the original I Am Legend

I'm a big fan of Franz Kafka (especially Der Prozeß; Amerika), I LOVE The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide to the galaxy (then again - who doesn't), Das Parfum, Crime and Punishment, Daniel Kehlmann (I consider him the best German author nowadays), I love Bertold Brecht's dramas and Albert Camus (especially The Stranger; The Plague).
These are the ones that came to my mind right now, there are just too many great books and authors to name them all.

George R R Martin, Leo Tolstoy, Chaim Potok and er.....um... Erich Maria Remarque (the guy who wrote All Quiet on the Western Front)

I must admit, I haven't read a lot of books in my life. It's only recently that I found my passion for books.

Don't read much these days. George RR Martin is definitely my fav author. Used to read a lot of John Grisham, also read a Chaim Potok book once and it was brilliant.

HP Lovecraft is there,
Piers Anthony (the non-Xanth stuff)
Douglas Adams (my idol)
JRR Tolkien (of course!!!)

I haven't been reading as much I'd like to, unfortunately, so I can't name much else beyond that at the moment.

Amen.
I read it about year ago, it was one of the most beautifully written and creative books I've ever read.

Anyways, my favorite authors include Michael Crichton, Dennis Lehane and Ayn Rand. Yes, they're also "cliche" but who cares? They're all excellent writers.

Lately, I've also been getting into Pier Paulo Pasolini, George Orwell, L Ron Hubbard and Truman Capote.

EDIT: How could I forget Tolkein? Add that to "favorites"
