The Nobel Prize in Literature It will be awarded to the best authors in the world, the most influential, those who are different and those who mark the world with their works, and it is precisely they who have the best books that you should read at least once.
Bob dylan is kind of an exception to the rule, he he took the Nobel for his music and poetry, when most of the winners and nominees are famous for their novels (Haruki Murakami, for example, he has been nominated on several occasions, although he still does not win. Let’s say it’s for him Nobel what DiCaprio it was for him Oscar before The Revenant).
You just have to clarify a small detail, it is not exactly the book that wins, it is rare to see an author who has only written one win the award, rather it is a recognition for the work of the writer, thinking about his essential works and in works that, according to the committee of the NobelThey are extraordinary and deserve the attention of the whole world.
Bill gates says it, you have to read more in order to grow and keep learning (and there are many great books waiting for you), and a good place to start is with the best books by those who are already considered the best writers of our time (and no, Stephen King sadly is not on the list).
