Which famous British authors made it to The Big Read? A survey conducted in 2003 by the BBC to reveal the UK’s best-loved book? What novels are they famous for? And which of their books were in the Top 200 list?
There are a few things to consider, though, if you want to enjoy reading the novels written by the best-loved, famous British authors. First, determine where your interests lie. You may be interested in contemporary novelists, or perhaps you are more intrigued by classic writers? Works of English literature originating prior to World War II is considered by most to be classical in nature, whereas novels written during or after that war could be called contemporary fiction. An example of a classic writer would be Chaucer and Ernest Hemingway is a contemporary.
