Hey, I'm looking for a read with an impact. Something that once I've read it, I'll feel epiphanised.
Recommendations?

The Book Thief.

I was an emotional wreck after I had read it. I cry quite easily at books but I had the most profound cry I have ever had once I'd finished this book.

Man's Search for Meaning - Viktor Frankl

Make sure you read that, not the one with "ultimate" in the title. That one, the follow up, is boring.

Down and out... by George Orwell is also very eye-opening whilst light-hearted.

It is simply the most mundane, boring, pointless, irritatingly narrated books that has ever existed. The so called 'moving' parts are by now very cliche - black people = inequality duh.

Brave New World
Catch-22
The Bluest Eye

Also for me, Anne of Green Gables because it's basically my go-to book at all times but none of my friend like it. Literally none. I need to move to Canada. Half of my life lessons came from those books. That and Little Women.

Well, that's your opinion, I loved it. The moving parts for me is seeing Scout growing up. Sometimes when I am sad I just remember Atticus Finch and then it all is better But that's me

Lolz, I'm still not done, but I've been reading it and watching the MIT course and it's just so interesting! I don't think I could have just read the book, most of the stuff would have gone straight over my head :lol:.
