I would actually put C as LOTR since it shaped much of what to expect from programming languages, but, when compared with other works... it might be lacking.
Java would be Malazan, it's hard to get into and have "everything".
ASOIAF would maybe be PHP? Its popularity can't be denied but so is the flame they receive.
Kingkiller... Python? The prose is beautiful and the world is full of possibilities.
WOT is C#/C++, it feels like LOTR but has... so much more.
Mistborn is Javascript. A lot of potential and strong enthusiasts, but has its flaws.
Stormlight Archive is Rust! A masterpiece in the making with people falling in love without even scrapping its surface.
