Top 100 Greatest Writers Ever (2017)

Shakespeare is most famous author in history. But who are the greatest writers of all time? Here is the list of 100 greatest novelists ever.

Books are the best gift that you can give to anyone. Books are the connecting dots between generations. Even though the means of communications have increased but still Books are the best medium to convey a message at large scale and to different generations. History has it that many writers took the help of literature to bring down the mightiest of the kingdoms and to bring a revolution among the republic. Probably that is why it is said that Pen is mightier than sword.

It is not easy to write a novel and to pen down a revolutionary saga is a feat itself. Many authors have blessed the world by sharing their ideas and point of view with the general people. They knowledge shared by such great authors was passed down to generations and we as a society became more aware and more social.

Here we have chosen 100 greatest authors of all time that revolutionized the world of literature. To justify the selection in this list we opted for a voting system and the great writers listed here are chosen as the most inspirational and motivational writers ever.
