All good books come from a talented author. State your favourite authors and the books they write. You can also state your reasons as well.

Oooh. I haven't heard of him, but those titles sound really interesting. Maybe I should check them out.

He is good at explaining difficult concept in simple terms. The last one is a must read, it's good for introducing you to critical thinking.

I've just recently been watching a ton of videos on Youtube about Carl Sagan. He's a very intelligent and poetic man, in my opinion.


For me personally, I'd have to go with Tolkien of Lord of the Rings fame. This due to the fact that I'm a huge fantasy nerd. :P

Yea, he is a great man. Too bad that most of us here do not know of him since he passed away when we are still too young to understand.

I'll see if I can find his books around. He sounds like a great author and his books sound interesting as well as eye opening.

As for my favourite authors, I'll have to choose Gaiman. His dark-themed books with elements of humour and twisted fantasies really appeal to me.

If you read his book, you might end up considering higher education in science. He kinda make the science sound very interesting.

Hmm.. Since I'm interested in taking the Science stream next year, his work sounds promising. Is it fiction, or is it non-fiction and something like Stephen Hawking's work?

It's non-fiction. His work is easier to understand than Hawking's. Hawking's books are too specialized.
