Hard to say. Books I consider to be "the best" could be held in contempt with others. But:
Ender's Game by Oson scott Card.

Ender's Game is good but I think that LOTR is better, but there are books out there better than LOTR, like machiavelli said, but LOTR is still skilfully written.

I would have to say that the best book I have read is 'Pride and Prejudice.' She has an amazing writing style.:!: the way the book made you feel like you were part of it and the literary elemants that were entwined into it were amazing. it made you feel like when you went out into public you should act with the same composure as Jane and not be as imprudent as elizabeth.

It is hard to say which is the best -

The Hobbit by J. R. R Tolkien.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.

Of course there are lots of books that I have not read...

I have to say the best book i ever read was Gone with the wind. I fell in love with this book. I am a huge fan of the movie also. I have read it again and again. I say it by far the best.

I like Wuthering Heights
but Jonathon Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke is a close second.

Classic does not mean 'good'.
