Do You Think You Know This Author’s Most-Reviewed Book?

Reviews can be telling. Aside from the obvious (“I enjoyed this book/I didn’t enjoy this book because . . .), I think the overall number of reviews a book receives on Goodreads can provide insight on the most popular or divisive books in a writers bibliography.

I’ve been cruising through some famous author pages, and the most reviewed book is not always what you might expect. Some are obvious. Other are surprising.

So the game today is simple. I name an author, and you name what you think would be their most-reviewed book on Goodreads, then click the link to see if you got it right. See if you can get all five.
