World Book Night

Our lecturer today reminded us that it is World Book Night on Saturday. To mark the occasion she is distributing copies of Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez to our class for us to share and pass round. This is her favourite book. I think that it is wonderful that she is sharing this with us, and I can’t wait to read it.

Sadly, I have not come across a book so far that has had that sort of life changing or profound effect on me, but that is probably because I only get time to read university set books with the odd bit of chick-lit as escapism, but I’m up for new book experiences so all suggestions are welcome.

Have you ever been so moved emotionally by a book that you would like to share it with other people – and if so what is it?

It's a good question, Sue. I've read plenty of books I like/love but to think of ones that moved me emotionally is pretty tough.

I would say "Catcher in The Rye" but that's a bit predictable nowadays, so I'll slam down a novel by a French author called "The Lost Domain" - tough going in places but I love it, and really should have done my thesis on it rather than the nonsense I am doing.

I’ve not heard of The Last Domain.
What are you doing your dissertation on?
