I have many favourite authors. As a whole, I love Dostoevsky for the depth of his writing and the existential questions he explores. He takes you to the highest of highs before smashing you to the ground with an unexpected twist. It's a true journey of life, reading his work. From contemporary authors, I like Haruki Murakami. I especially like his short stories. His work is simple and slow, yet deep and thought-provoking. The attention to details takes you on a journey when you can picture and feel what's happening in the book. That's what makes Murakami a master and I appreciate it.
William Shakespeare - he covered everything and every nuance of the human soul, from love to envy, from sadism to sublime romance. Feodor Dostoevsky - His novels are even by today standards supreme achievements of crime stories, Gothic atmosphere, incredibly deep plunging into the darkest secrets of the human psyche Leo Tolstoy - The most towering vision of the society and humans in general, the guy that everybody revered, loved, looked upon to. A real emperor of the literature, a Caesar in all merits Anton Chekhov - My personal favorite, in the past he used to be my everyday spiritual bread. The most delicate observer while the most merciless with human hope in general. By far the best short story writer of all times and the best play writer of the modern era Special mentions - Homer, Gustave Flaubert, Victor Hugo, Guy de Maupassant, Stendhal, Thomas Mann, Nikolai Gogol.
