Thursday Talk-Thread 3
Let's talk about books
Today, I want to talk about something that’s dear to my heart - reading books. I’ve been an avid reader for most of my life and must have read like 400+ books in my lifetime.
Most of them are fiction, I’m not a big fan of non-fiction. And I want to share my top book of all time :
It is hands-down One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey. And I doubt any other book will ever topple its position.
No book has shaken me as emotionally as this one did. Set in a mental health ward and with just a handful of characters, this book is impossibly deep and compelling.
Power dynamics, friendship, struggle, tragedy, war, courage, meaning, hope. It has it all.
I’d be doing an injustice even trying to describe this masterpiece. Trust me and give it a read.
Now, it’s your turn. What’s your #1 book of all time and why? I’d love to know. My reading queue is running short anyway xD.
Hard to choose a number 1 tbh. But I think gone girl, for me, is pretty close to a number 1 book. I love the POV chapters and how the writer changes our perception of the characters. Definitely check it out.
