These days we are bombarded with so many things that at times we are not able to distinguish one from another. Like if you go inside your favorite bookstore, or have just landed on a YouTube site, or perhaps just idly walking in the mall, the choices that are presented to you, in their visaul forms, are just enormous. Whenever I go out with my family, for example, and I ask them where they would like to eat, the answers that you'll be getting may range from one culinary option to another, and there are times , especially when the you're running on a shoe-string budget, when the best option is to buy food and just eat at home. Be that as it may, it is good therefore to have a favorite because you can save both the time and the drama that goes into the making of a final choice. In life as with books, we all have our favorite authors, probably not just coming from one genre but others as well. In spy thrillers for example, my favorites are Le Carre, Ludlum, and their like; for historical novels, I go for H Wouk; for classics, I like Dostoyevsky and Tolkien; for contemporary literature, Marquez and at Coelho. Sometimes my old folks will tell me about their favorite poets too that I haven't heard yet and I just listen to whatever good that they may say about their favorite authors. So who is you favorite author?
