I would have to say Steinbeck, he's a genius when it comes to writing about human nature.

I don't really have a favorite autor but i guess my favortie autor is Koios Belenus. but you won't really find him anywhere cause he's a local autor and doesn't really publish his books.

My favorite author is by far Ellen Hopkins. The subject matter of her books pulls you in so deep that you feel as if you are one with the book. Her stories are written in verse, and I think it makes them just that much more interesting.

Charles Dickens, his writing is realistic and I like the theme of Bildungsroman in his novels.

I would have to say J.R.R Tolkien. Probably a generic answer, but I am a crazy fan of Lord of the Rings now. I read the books, Hobbit, 3 part series, Simarilion... I love his writing style. Every character big and small has a personality. He also provides fantastic descriptions of the landscapes and surrounding scenery.

I can't really say, as I haven't read and loved more than two books by the same author. If I must choose, however, Simon Winchester, because I've only read two of his books but they are favorites.

I have been reading quite a bit of H.L. Mencken's work. He has a unique style of writing that one is hard pressed to find in modern day authors. I am drawn to his satirical humour which seems to be a congenital trait among natives of Baltimore. It is for this fact that I have a favourable bias as I am also a product of Baltimore, land of the pragmatists. Mencken's outspoken and opinionated pieces are bound to offend some people. As much as I try to empathize with his opinions on certain subjects I am still unable to cede to his views. :)

The topic name explains this .

My favorite character would have to be Dexter Morgan from Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay. He is a serial killer who kills other serial killer,fakes his emotions,AND has good dark humor.

My favorite part of him is that he is heartless.
