I haven't read enough to say that. Christopher Paolini's work was joy to read, but it was obvious that he took ideas from other things and morphed them a bit. I also love Hosseini but his books aren't diverse enough. Dan brown is cool, but I'm not fond of his early works. I cannot say who is my favorite author period but they are some of them.
