BTT: Posterity

Do you think any current author is of the same caliber as Dickens, Austen, Bronte, or any of the classic authors? If so, who, and why do you think so? If not, why not? What books from this era might be read 100 years from now?

I’m not going to mention any books here…coz that’s too difficult for me.

I am just going to write about one of few authors that’s going to stand through the test of time.

He is Stephen King!!!

The reason why I think he is going to be remembered is NOT BECAUSE HE IS MY FAVORITE AUTHOR …but because he is the most well-known horror writer in our time. He’s like the rock-star of book industry.

I know that not everyone enjoy Stephen King’s book due to the gruesome death in most of his works…but you have to admit that at least you know about his works!!

And if you look behind his horror stories…you can also find amazing stories on humanity, such as Green Mile and Shawshank.

So…I believe his works will still be read even after 100years from now.

What do you think?

Happy BTT 🙂


  1. You do love Stephen King don’t you! I think that’s a fair choice actually, I’m sure he will be remembered.

    Novroz’ Answer
    Yes I do love Stephen King…but my choice today is not based on that…it is purely based on his existance in book industry

  2. Hey! What about JK Rowling? or Tolkien? Or even Stephenie Meyer? Their works are phenomenon, right?

    *my very first comment regarding your BTT ^_^

    Novroz’ Answer
    Whoaaa…I don’t have to mention everyone on sight!! I just wanna give 1 name.

    I do agree on Tolkien and JK Rowling…but Meyer? ow pleaaaaseeee!!!

  3. I am not well-read in King’s novels, but he’s on my list as someone I need to check out just because he’s Stephen King, so perhaps you are right. Here’s my link:

    Novroz’ Answer
    Yeah not everyone like horror…but just like what you’ve said, “Just because he’s Stephen King” 😉

  4. Whether you like her (Meyer) or not, there’s no denying that she’s going to have a pretty nice life from the saga, not forgetting the movie franchise and stuffs.

    But, I do agree on the fact that you can’t compare her to Austen or Bronte or Dickens.

    And what about Mr.Grisham? 🙂

    Novroz’ Answer
    Well…apparently, I am not the only one that disagree on Meyer 🙂 … there are more BTT-ers in the same page as I am on Meyer


  5. I think King will be thought of in a more literary light as time passes. He tends to be thought of as thrilling, junk-food reads. I disagree. He is an amazing storyteller and his books have amazing depth.

    Novroz’ Answer
    I totally agree with you!! Some of his works can be consider as light but some others are very strong and deep, such as greenmile, shawshank, etc

Say something so I know you have read my post, THANK YOU for reading :)
