If you could have written any novel, which would it be?

Stephen King said he wished he had written The Lord of the Flies. How about you? Mine would be:

-Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell

-Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

-Anne of Green Gables by LM Montgomery

-Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

-The Neverending Story by Michael Ende

-A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett

-The Raging Quiet by Sherryl Jordan

-The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien

-Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

I admire them a lot. Those authors are genius and very creative in my opinion.

    Very good question! Some of my favorites are like yours.

    1. Jane Eyre. For several years I've had the idea in my head for a story in which a heroine's mental endowments and moral principles make her a great character, rather than beauty or society charm. I always envisioned a slightly degenerate, but infinitely lovable, hero. I saw them fall in love and he ask her to be his mistress. She would of course refuse, and later he would come to love her more for her strong principles. And of course, they would live happily ever after.

    All this I envisioned without the endless other details that make Jane Eyre one of the greatest books ever written.

    2. Anne of Green Gables - enough said

    3. The Story Girl and The Golden Road, both by L.M. Montgomery

    4. The Blue Castle by LMM

    5. Eight Cousins by Louisa May Alcott

    Because it (and Rose In Bloom) make good old-fashioned principles very appealing.

    The Cosmic Rape by Theodore Sturgeon

    Any of Georgette Heyer's Regency Novels

    I love inventive and surprising, not so big on gritty and disturbing, and I think fun is always a plus, however fleeting.

    I probably would have written the Lord of The Rings! Because it is very interesting and complicated. I think that I am that kinda of guy, and would like to express my feelings that way.
