Aside from the Bible, I’m not sure I can say a book has changed my life.
My favorite book has changed a lot of times.
Right now, it’s Marcus Zusak’s The Book Thief.
A novel set mostly during the horrors of the Holocaust, one reason (among the many) the story stands out because of the storyteller.
I also enjoyed All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr.
I’m not sure how this post morphed into a list of books set in one of the most horrific periods of history, but if you want a quintessential account of it, read Anne Frank’s diary.
From fact to fiction, Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird paints a vivid picture of home and humanity in the Depression-era Deep South.
Right now, I’m reading my first Stephen King book, 11-22-63.
I’m actually listening to the story on Audible.
Voices for each of the characters add a lot to the time traveler’s quest to save John F. Kennedy and a make a few other changes to the past (or the future) along the way.
