the book that changed it all.
i am wondering, what is the book that, once you read it, it just clicked something within you..spoke to you, or inspired some sort of change within you?
for me, the book that changed me most was vonneguts 'breakfast of champions'. pathetically teenaged enough, i ended up picking it up because the ethan embry character in cant hardly wait was going to see him.. vonnegut was his hero n stuff. and i knew i had heard that name before, so i was in a bookstore one day, as i often am, and i found the vonnegut section and bought breakfast of champions. it changed me in the sense that it inspired me to hold my own ideas and not be afraid to express them. it basically changed my whole outlook in a weird way. i wanted to learn on my own, write, do what i felt was right rather than what i was told was right, be independent... and it was the thing that guided me to the philosophy segment of the library, which was a forever-changing event for me... things like that, etc then i looked for others..and the other books that have generally fucked-up my present life the most, in an amazing way were, in this order; 1984[orwell]... the art of living and dying in peace[dalai lama] ..and survivor[my first chuck book].
so, if you have that one book, or few books, that have caused you to change in some way, what is it and why?
