The one I enjoyed most is the Lord of the Rings trilogy closely followed by the Harry Potter series. Apocalypse Now gets a special mention for all round brillance without actually being that enjoyable to watch.
The best book I have ever reaad is Ender’s Game and Orson Scott Card is my favourite author. Second and third places go to the Lord of The Rings and Forever War.
