Quick Doodle – Favorite Authors/Favorite Quotes “John Steinbeck,Hunter S. Thompson and Ayn Rand”

John Steinbeck

Of Mice and Men and Grapes of Wrath were among the first few books I read in English and I’ve always admired how Steinbeck delivered a sermon without having to get on the pulpit. :) One of the greatest chroniclers of the human condition.

Hunter S. Thompson

One word: Gonzo! I read Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Rum Diary back to back, and fell in love with the reckless abandon in Thompson’s writing. To me it felt sort of was like watching Jackson Pollock paint with a firehose full of paint or a 50 calibre paintball gun. :D

Ayn Rand

The Anthem is a severely underrated book. It was the second Ayn Rand book I read after reading We, The Living. Later on, I read Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead. But for me, the best work of Ayn Rand will always be The Night of Janurary 16th.
