Classic fantasy is the clear winner
THE Lord of the Rings, J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic tale of the struggle between good and evil, is a clear favourite with Malaysian readers.
It topped StarMag’s poll of Malaysians’ top 10 favourite works of fiction by a large margin, garnering 25 more votes than the Harry Potter series, which came in second, followed closely by the American classic To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
