Re: Greatest fantasy books

Subject: Re: Greatest fantasy books

I haven't read a lot of adult fantasy (except Tolkien of course), but I've read a bit more children's fantasy. Also, to keep room for other authors, I've given Tolkien just one spot, otherwise I think it would all have been Tolkien (at least in the adult list).

Adult:
1) JRR Tolkien (LotR, Sil, CoH, The Hobbit, Leaf by Niggle, Smith of Wootton Major)
2) Dracula - Bram Stoker
3) The Color of Magic - Pratchett (only one I've read from the Discworld series but there are more to follow, definitely!)
4) The (Poetic) Edda (at least the tales I've read up till now)

(Those are the fantasy novels I can remember having read)

Children's:
1) Harry Potter series - JK Rowling
2) JRR Tolkien (The Hobbit (I like it more as an adult novel), Farmer Giles of Ham, Roverandom)
3) The Chronicles of Narnia - CS Lewis
4) A Dutch series called De Griezelbus (The Bus of Horror)
5) King Arthur and His Knights - Anthony Mockler (has references to Tolkien's writings: a nazgûl appears, Merlin says his name was once 'Gandalf' (well, it comes down to this), the Lady of the Lake is in fact Galadriel,... Not great literature, but quite fun to read.
