Megan Mccafferty. Her writing style is so jagged and thought provoking and HILARIOUS.

Milan Kundera!

Read his books - Ignorance, Incredible lightness of being and a few others and absolutely love his writing style! It flows with an ease and seems simple and yet is so deep!

Will edit later in the day - have a lot more to say, about this author, who introduced me to a new style of writing altogether!

And my vote goes TO:

Sydney Sheldon-Come along, isn't there any one single SS fan? I LOVE SS! Why? For the simple reason of being a total page turner! I can never keep a book down. The twists and turns, character developements and endings are stunning! Plus another thing that specially draws me towards his books are the portrayal of feminine characters-courageous, intelligent and beautiful. Quite inspirational!!! The Best Laid Plans and Other side of Midnight are my favourites.

J.k.Rowling-I absolutely ADORE JK! Her books are quirky, un-putdownable AND amazing! She has the rare talent of making fantasy both readable AND mysterious! My favourite is POA and Half Blood Prince. 

James Hadley Chase-The story from the criminal's POV-quite delicious! There's not one solitary moment-though no great serious novels-a really fine source of entertaintment!

Agatha Christie-Hiii Chiilt I absolutely share your love! But fact is, I've got used to Agatha Christie, that I usually get an inkling of the culprit! Absolutely adore Sad Cypress!

Meg Cabot-She's absolutely readable! I've only read Princess Diaries-and i don't exactly care much for Mia BUT I love her WRITINGSS! Talk about readability!!!

Frederick Forsyth-Heady stuff-but great reading when you get into the plot! Loved The Day of the Jackal and The Veteran. Find the spy bits boring, but as a whole-shape!

I've not read The Kite Runners-but from you guys raving comments, i'm determined to CHECK it out the next time I go book-shopping!

Mine would have to be JK Rowling, because Harry Potter is my absolute favorite!!

But I also love Anthony Horowitz for his Alex Rider series...

I have quite a few favourites:
Emily Bronte - Because her "Wuthering Heights" at the time it was written was rather unorthrodox. Her realistic portrayal of the human nature (no pun intended), her prose, her complex narrative structure and her narrative point of view are an absolute delight. Her passion is evident in the words she writes. I only wish Charlotte had not burned her other novel, out of jealousy or love. It would have been a treat.
Jane Austen - Her biting sarcasm in her political and social commentaries never fails to amuse me. Most of her works are pure jems. Her realism is absolutely fantastic. The irony within her writing always manages to engage me. I've read Pride and Prejudice, along with Emma more times than I care to count.
Fyodor Dostoevsky: Anything by him is a complete masterpiece. Although the length can seem daunting, none of his books or short stories, for that matter, are boring. They are insightful while providing a thorough dose of realism. His characters are extremely realistic.
Vladimir Nabokov - Despite the unconventional story, "Lolita" was a masterpiece. His style of writing is exceptionally appealing and it's a shame people refuse to pick up Lolita because of the implicit scenes of sexuality in it. It's far more complex than a pedophile having a mid-life crisis.
