Eoin Colfer's 6 favorite books

Eoin Colfer is the author of the bestselling Artemis Fowl series. He named his six favorite books for The Week Magazine.

One title on his list:
Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson

This is always on any list I compile. Scary, funny, and loaded with the kind of unforgettable characters that make all writers want to try harder. This novel has featured on best-of compilations for more than 100 years.

Treasure Island also appears on John Mullan's list of ten of the best pirates in fiction and among Philip Pullman's six best books.
