Your favourite book of all time
I am so glad this 30 day challenge is over! Woohoo!
Anyway this is my all time favourite book, mostly because of its quirky nature and outrageous story. I would recommend this book to everyone. An awesome read that will leave you stunned.
A book everyone hated but you liked
Shoeless Joe wasn’t all that bad.
I am still trying to finish this book but I do love the title.
The most surprising plot twist or ending
Sidney Sheldon is the master of surprising plot twists and endings. This was the first book that I had read of his and the ending shocked me. I could have picked any one of the books of his that I have read because they all have major twists at the end. A genius of suspense and mystery, he will hold your attention until the last word.
A book that changed your opinion about something
This book made me realize that money isn’t everything. It also made me realize how important it is to stay true to your roots and be aware of the world around you. Money can create problems whether you have it or you don’t but as long as you try to live comfortably and enjoy the little things, life can be a lot easier. This book was really good because it takes you through a journey by the way of a struggling chef trying to keep his restaurant down to earth but has to sell out due to financial woes. With the help of a franchise-chain owner he reopens his restaurant as a ‘fancy-food you’ve never heard of’ restaurant. Throughout the book he spends more and more time inside Stanley Park where he begins capturing wild animals and turns them into delicious meals for the homeless people who are staying in the park. This is where he realizes he is most-happiest and he changes his life and begins to live a simpler lifestyle. This book helped me form my outlook on life and its easily avoidable complications.
A character who you can relate to the most
I can’t really say that I relate to any certain character that I have read. The characters that I read have these ginormous problems that they need to overcome whereas I live a fairly simple life without giant obstacles to climb. I mean I do have my own problems but they don’t really compare to any character that I have come across. I could tell you of some characters that don’t relate to me at all. Such as Holden Caulfield from A Catcher in the Rye. He is a rebellious kid who gives up on the world claiming everyone as a phony and runs away from home. Maybe I could have related to that when I was younger and more rebellious and hated my parents like every other kid but I wouldn’t say I’m like that now. I’m definitely not like Harry Potter where I have discovered this new power and a whole new world and to learn that I have the potential to be the greatest wizard the world has ever seen. Characters in books are made to be exciting and interesting. They aren’t usually everyday people who just go with the flow and what happens happens. So it is pretty hard to relate to any fictional character.
A book you wished more people would’ve read
I found that some of the people that I have talked to about this book have never finished it. They were discouraged by how for the first half of the book nothing actually happens. I wish people would read this book in its entirety because I think they are missing out on a good read. The first half is really slow but it’s all downhill from there and the book will keep you intrigued for the remainder of the story.
