Good Morning! This weeks book of the week is Sally Rooney’s ‘Normal people’. I have heard SO MUCH about this book over the past few weeks, so of COURSE I had to grab myself a copy (as well as a box of tissues, based on the reviews that I have read!!)
The Times newspaper review for this bestselling book said this “I FINISHED THE BOOK DETERMINED TO LOOK AT THE WORLD DIFFERENTLY. I’M NOT SURE WHAT HIGHER COMPLIMENT YOU CAN PAY A NOVEL”.
I think this really encapsulates what reading is all about - reading is all about changing lives. A good book - either fiction or non fiction - is a book that can transform your life and challenge your pre-existing world view. A good book is a book that has a genuine impact on your soul and leaves a lasting legacy in your life.
I wonder what books might have had this impact in your own life? I’m sharing a couple of the books that have changed my life here on benwardle.org this week - let me know yours!!
