You are only to pick ONE SINGLE book. I know it might be hard to pick just one, but still choose just one. Not the book which is most beautiful or impressively written. Not the most rescent book that made an impbobueland wrote:.. which has meant more in your life than...
I'm not really sure how to interpret this, uncle bob.You seem to preclude any of my knee-jerk resposes.
I've only read one novel, that caused me to seriously consider changing the path I was desirous of my life taking, and that was, 'Lady Chatterley's Lover', by D. H. Lawrence.
In 1960, on the cusp, twixt a life enhancing education, and the seeking of gainful, revenue generating full time employment, I read LCL. Thereafter, I felt that I no longer wanted to be a train driver, or a bus driver, but a gamekeeper instead. As you would expect, with all the publicity the LCL obscenity trial generated, applications for game keeping posts, were ridiculously over subscribe to. I became an apprentice panel beater instead.
Nothing I'd read prior, or since, has had that kind of impact on my preconceived notions of the path my life should take.
I,ve read many books that have left a lasting impression on me, though, but they all fall into the categories you've put the block on.
As soon as I read this, I was reminded of Alan Sillitoe's, 'Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner, part of which was made into a movie of the same name. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Loneli ... nce_Runnergeoffh wrote:...not only could I not run anymore, but I became drawn into a nihilistic outlook t
