message 16: by Aimee (new)

Aimee I think they are all great, but I think I picked Twilight because I am a fool for a love story.


message 15: by Betsy (new)

Betsy Boo This was tough because I love HP and LOTR both...but HP won out! :)


message 14: by Yahyah (new)

Yahyah What is wrong with the world?! Twilight is the best and will always be the best! But the other novels in the category are good as well.


message 13: by Andrew (new)

Andrew Lord of the Rings kind of kills the competition. For me, at least, since its absolutely amazing. I can't believe Harry Potter won. Or, well, I can, but I still wish it had swapped places with Lord of the Rings.


message 12: by Andrea (last edited Jun 13, 2013 07:20AM) (new)

Andrea I read Lord of the Rings, and I liked it of course, but I don't remember being so much excited about it. It may be written better than the others (as many people say), but I didn't find it yet. Maybe I will someday when I read it over again.
I read only the first book of Chronicles, so that's out.
I don't like Twilight (the book of course, I love that part of day =D ), characters are shallow and poorly written, and even though that some things have explanation - I still find Edward and Jacob some sort of pedophiles. Not to mention other things. Sorry, S.Meyer.
So that leaves Harry Potter. I grew up with these books, I was biting my nails when I was reading it and I was curious about what happens next. It is one of my favourite series.
So, I vote for HP.

Sj Depends on if it's the story or the writing and the story.


message 10: by Ben (new)

Ben 'Pends if you count all the spin-offs and histories and so on on to LOTR or not. If you do, it wins by a very very long way. If you don't, it just wins some more.

I've never read Twilght or Chronicles, though I have read both Harry Potter and LOTR. Lord of the Rings wins because I enjoy reading the style of wrting, and with LOTR you also get much more of a sense that someone's put in many years work, because everything fits in and the whole long winding plot has obviously been thought through.

Savannah Creel All of them are amazing book and so are the movies.


message 8: by Dana (new)

Dana Salman I've read all of them except The Lord Of the Rings, but I know that Harry Potter will always be my favorite.


message 7: by Amanda (new)

Amanda I've read them all (Twilight excluded) but I had to go with LOTR because the others are more like brain candy. I really have to pay attention while reading LOTR and I can't just rush right through it like the other ones.

That's a really good way of putting it! I agree.


message 5: by Siri (new)

Siri Howard Andrew, I agree with you completely! That trilogy is the father of the fantasy genre, in my opinion. The depth of character, beautiful prose, and painstaking precision Tolkien took in creating an entire history and even language to create the world in which his characters lived and died is beyond the scope of any other book or series.


message 4: by André (new)

André I must admit I have never read Twilight, but the little bit I looked at and the theme as was shown in the movie left me completely uninterested. Of the other three, I did like them all but although Harry Potter has a great story and The Chronicles of Narnia is a collection of very well thought books, it is my opinion that creating Middle-Earth and writing The Lord of the Rings is itself an achievement seldom reached by any other writer, and Tolkien's influences are easily found in most fantasy books. So to answer such an unspecific question as this, one must take that into account which leaves no chance for any other of the options.


message 3: by Andy (new)

Andy No contest...


message 2: by Jose (new)

Jose I feel sorry for the people that have no appreciation for the series that had a greatest impact on the first 21st century's generation...Harry Potter.


message 1: by Novia (new)

Novia Most definitely the Lord of The Rings...it's still the best fantasy book i have ever read
