Who is your favourite author?

Postby _Arale_ » Thu Jun 16, 2005 11:23 am

Each author has his/her own writing style so it's quite hard to say who is better. I admire many authors and Jack London is my most favourite author. I specially like his style, a bit wild, a bit bitter, a bit cold...All senses are combined in his novels. The call of the wild gives me the greatest impression.

All. Each author has his/her own style to catch your interest.

It's so difficult to say, but some of my favorite are Catalan writers Mercè Rodoreda and Isabel-Clara Simó. International writers: Dan Brown or William Shakespeare...

His portrait of 19th century England is awesome, especially Hard Times, where he deals with the Industrial Revolution.

Personally, my favourite author is Jean-Paul Sartre :P (a french author who got a Nobel prize, but who refused it... do'nt know if anyone there knows him :roll: )
But I have to admit that Isaac Asimov, in science-fiction, is excellent too !
