MIB's Top Ten Fiction Novels

Man in Black "MIB"
The list author says: "My list runs the gamut of my life - from books my Mom read to me growing up - to great reads that still help me escape at age 40. Science fiction is my favorite genre but it's definitely not a barrier to any other types of stories. And the list is backwards... number one starting with my tenth favorite."
Old Man's War
Old Man's War
"Old Man's War shares a similar concept with Avatar, but along with transferred consciousness - you get irreverent humor, visceral, bloody battles and a journey through the stars."
Little House On The Prairie
Little House On The Prairie
"What can I say that hasn't been said about this timeless story. It's the perfect bedtime book... it keeps the kids interested and the adult yearning to peek at the next page after the little ones nod off."
Star Of Gypsies
Star Of Gypsies
"I can't think of a more epic journey that a single character takes inside the covers of a novel. Where you wind up at the end of the book is made ever more remarkable as the reader recalls how far away the first few pages seem."
The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
"This is the wackiest stuff you'll ever read... and then read again and again... enjoying every chapter, laughing at every page... without understanding a darned word of it!"
The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle
The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle
"This story has nothing to do with Eddie Murphy. No book ever read to me during my childhood sparked my imagination more than Dr. Doolittle. I can still see the creatures and faraway lands that came to life off those pages."
Way of the Pilgrim
Way of the Pilgrim
"To me there is not a better alien invasion story. Few pieces of literature have made my readjust my thinking like Way of the Pilgrim. The word epiphany is overused, but I can't think of a better one to describe my trip through the last chapters of this book."
The Worthing Saga
The Worthing Saga
"There is really no short way to describe this novel. I can throw out the word epic... but that is still an understatement. I believe Card is the only author who could undertake a project with such massive scope - and not only make it work, but pack it into one book that you absolutely can't put down."
Speaker for the Dead (The Ender Quintet)
Speaker for the Dead (The Ender Quintet)
"This is the best sequel I've ever read... and it belongs to the best novel I've ever read... which leads me to my number one."
Ender's Game (The Ender Quintet)
Ender's Game (The Ender Quintet)
"I could gush out pages of praise for Ender's Game. I'll just say that even without the ending it's a near perfect story... but add in the finale and you leave somebody like me, who doesn't believe in perfection... by man, struggling to find another way to describe it."
