The 47 Best Fiction Books Of All Time
You’re searching for the perfect story or novel to read? Then here is my list with 47 top fiction books in any order. Ulysses by James Joyce-Banned for obscenity here in the USA, this stream of consciousness book follows one Irish man through his thoughts and actions for an entire year. Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace, a novel often called one of the finest ever. There are many characters that range from Muscovite peasants up to Napoleon. This is the modern epic. Anna Karenina – Leo Tolstoy is 100 years ahead of his time. His investigation into the quiet, suffering lives of women in this century’s modern epic is unsurpassed. Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert – A classic of 19th century realism. A cautionary tale about romanticism. The Old Man and the Sea (by Ernest Hemingway) – This is often Hemingway’s best work. A short novella about a Cuban fisherman. Hemingway was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature for this. William Faulkner wrote The Sound and the Fury. This is a novel that tells the story from the perspectives of various members of the family. It also includes the mental handicapped protagonist. Brilliantly written and transcends any boundaries.
The Best 20 Novels of the Decade
Friends, the end is coming. It’s been a difficult, anxiety-provoking, morally compromised decade, but at least it’s been populated by some damn fine literature. Our silver linings will be taken wherever we can.
While it is our honorable duty as an online literary and culture site, we also have full consciousness of how difficult and futile this task can be in the weeks ahead. We’ll take a look back at the best, most influential (these are not always the identical) books that were published during the decade. The list will vary, but we’ll do it. Our list began with the very best of the decade’s debut novels. Our eighth, and hardest list is now complete: the best English-language novels published between 2010 and 2019.
We were shocked to discover that choosing 10 wasn’t an easy decision. We decided to be the captains of our destiny and allowed 20 choices. . . Plus nearly that many dissents. Reissues were not allowed, as you would expect this list to include Speedboat, The Last Samurai and Who Was Changed, Who Was Dead and a host of other titles. Also, we discounted books in translation for this list. They got their own list last week and would have made the list twice as long. (My beloved Sweet Days of Discipline, certainly in the top ten novels I personally read this decade, is doubly ineligible , but luckily I also write these introductions.) The Literary Hub staff has now chosen the books that will be the final time after much discussion (and many rounds of voting). Tears were spilled, feelings were hurt, books were re-read. We’re always open to hearing your thoughts and suggestions in the comment section.
Here’s the full list: 100 Best Nonfiction Books of All Time

Sun 31 Dec 2017, 03.30 ET Last Modified on Wed 24, Jul 2019, 11.58 EDT. Sixth Extinction (2014) by Elizabeth Kolbert. An engaging account of the imminent catastrophe caused by ecological’s “neighbours to hell”.
The author was able to examine her grief after the death of her husband with a brutal and honest examination. This changed the way she writes about bereavement.
Naomi Klein’s antibranding bible, which Naomi Klein wrote in a timely manner, combined a new approach to corporate power and powerful reports from the darker side of capitalism.

Ten Best Fiction Books for 2020
Justin J Wee, TIME. Reading fiction in 2020 was an act defiance to turning our attention from the disasters around us and engaging in quiet, creative acts. And the year’s best fiction offered many paths toward greater understanding and meaningful escape. Readers could be found in the tumultuous Halls of Power in Tudor England, a hurricane-ravaged house in A Children’s Bible, or a haunted Japan in Where the Wild Ladies Are. They would find joy, excitement, models of resilience, empathy, and other challenges that made their lives easier.
Here, the best fiction books of 2020.
Mieko Kawakami is a Japanese author who follows three female characters and how they deal with changing bodies. This is her first English-language novel. There’s 30-year-old Natsu, her older sister Makiko and Makiko’s daughter Midoriko. Translated by Sam Bett and David Boyd the first half of Breasts and Eggs focuses on Makiko and her quest for breast enhancement and Midoriko’s refusal to talk to them. Their interactions are relayed through the dry voice of Natsu in scenes filled with blunt and witty dialogue. Kawakami switches the story and moves forward ten years later, focusing more on Natsu who is still single, but contemplating motherhood. Natsu was very measured in her narration of the story of Natsu’s sister’s obsessiveness with perfecting her look, but she now feels confused about how to age. Kawakami offers a poignant look at how women feel about their aging and what the world expects of them.
