Robert Louis Stevenson, Jules Verne and say what you wish but I love the Brothers Grimm Jacob and ‎Wilhelm Grimm only wrote short stories but they had me gripped as a kid and I still love to read them now.

Thomas Hardy, Charles Dickens and D H Lawrence.
However, my favourite novel is Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte.

I tend to read autobiographies so it's difficult to draw up a list of three authors.

However, in the spirit of the thread I will have a go.

When I was a teenager I loved reading the war novels by Sven Hassel and Leo Kessler (Charles Whiting) and read quite a lot of them.

I have read most of the books containing the weekly newspaper articles by Jeremy Clarkson, on both motoring and farming.

So that’s my three.

Pearl S. Buck, Arthur C. Clarke, Neil Boyd.
I too found it difficult to reduce the number to just three authors/ authoresses.
