I love Dickens a lot))) His way of writing, you know)) It's so easy to read) Dickens was regarded as the literary colossus of his age.His 1843 novella, A Christmas Carol, remains popular and continues to inspire adaptations in every artistic genre. Oliver Twist and Great Expectations are also frequently adapted, and, like many of his novels, evoke images of early Victorian London. His 1859 novel, A Tale of Two Cities, set in London and Paris, is his best-known work of historical fiction. Dickens's creative genius has been praised by fellow writers—from Leo Tolstoy to George Orwell and G. K. Chesterton—for its realism, comedy, prose style, unique characterisations, and social criticism. On the other hand, Oscar Wilde, Henry James, and Virginia Woolf complained of a lack of psychological depth, loose writing, and a vein of saccharine sentimentalism. The term Dickensian is used to describe something that is reminiscent of Dickens and his writings, such as poor social conditions or comically repulsive characters.

I love Mark Twain and his Tom SOyer))) Though Twain earned a great deal of money from his writings and lectures, he invested in ventures that lost a great deal of money, notably the Paige Compositor, a mechanical typesetter, which failed because of its complexity and imprecision. In the wake of these financial setbacks, he filed for protection from his creditors via bankruptcy, and with the help of Henry Huttleston Rogers eventually overcame his financial troubles. Twain chose to pay all his pre-bankruptcy creditors in full, though he had no legal responsibility to do so.Twain was born shortly after a visit by Halley's Comet, and he predicted that he would "go out with it", too. He died the day after the comet returned. He was lauded as the "greatest American humorist of his age", and William Faulkner called Twain "the father of American literature".

My favourite author is Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock Holmes is a great detective, and Dr. Watson, his assistant, takes the readers to various places and situations, and introduces them to numerous strange characters and interesting plots.The author knows very well how to tell a story to his readers. When I read his books, it seems to me that I already know most of the places and almost all the people as described in the stories. The style of his writing is so vivid, so touching and so realistic that one forgets that they are not mere stories but facts of real lives. There remains his great art of story telling.

My all-time favourite author is Agatha Christie – The Queen of Crime. I read nearly all of her novels – many of them even several times. She published more than 50 detective novels and short stories as well as plays, including the world’s longest running play The Mousetrap. The Index Translationum lists her as the most translated author of all times with nearly twice as many translations as Jules Verne, being 2nd on that list. Her books are available in about 100 languages. So in case you like her novels, there are many books you can read in your target language. The original language of her books is English.

Just King))))) King has received Bram Stoker Awards, World Fantasy Awards, and British Fantasy Society Awards. His novella The Way Station (1980) was a Nebula Award novelette nominee. In 2003, the National Book Foundation awarded him the Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. His short story "The Man in the Black Suit" (1994) received the O. Henry Award. He has also received awards for his contribution to literature for his entire oeuvre, such as the World Fantasy Award for Life Achievement (2004), the Canadian Booksellers Association Lifetime Achievement Award (2007), and the Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America (2007). In 2015, King was awarded with a National Medal of Arts from the United States National Endowment for the Arts for his contributions to literature.

hI GUYS) Nice to meet you here)I like to read and I have my own library at home. I read every day and Like a fan of reading I have many favourite authors. But most of all I like Oscar Wilde. He is regarded as one of the greatest playwrights of the Victorian Era. In his lifetime he wrote nine plays, one novel, and numerous poems, short stories, and essays. :D :D Wilde was a proponent of the Aesthetic movement, which emphasized aesthetic values more than moral or social themes. Besides literary accomplishments, he is also famous, or perhaps infamous, for his wit, flamboyance, and affairs with men. He was tried and imprisoned for his homosexual relationship and made a crime.
