    And your favourite author is?

    I have a few I really like, but there can only be one favourite.
    Go on, make your choice.

    Mine, John Irving.

    I love Robin Hobb, particularly her Farseer Trilogy and the Golden Fool trilogy.

    One of my favourite books is The God Delusion.

    I also love a good biography, or autobiography. The one that I've enjoyed the most so far though is on Geoffrey Robertson.

    Well, since you asked -

    I have been seen with Jude the Obscure,
    I sometimes wander Far From The Madding Crowd,
    Though I do not have a Pair of Blue Eyes,
    I await The Return Of The Native,
    I don't think The Mayor Of Casterbridge was returned on the weekend,
    But I will not finish Tess Of The Durbevilles.
    ...
    ...

    - would have to be my favourite author, but there are a few others, like Richard Adams for Watership Down.
    Am.
    CC, Image editing OK.

    I googled this to see if it was a series on embroidery.

    Oh! And if you're into war description, or just war, or just description, try Bernard Cornwell's "Sharpe" series.
    The opening pages of "Sharpe's Waterloo" would make you a pacifist forever.

    Belief it or not, Ben Elton wrote a book about war that "would make you a pacifist forever."
    But for this thread, you can only have one favourite author, so Am's quote and this post don't exist.
