    No, Sarab, I haven`t read it... but sounds really interesting.

    I particularly liked "Small Miracles" by Yitta Halberstam y Judith Leventhal. It's a collection of over sixty stories about remarkable coincidences from everyday life. (This book made me more aware of those coincidences and helped me understand some things about my life)

    I also enjoyed Tolkien's books very much, especially the beautiful stories from "The Sylmarillion" and "100 years of solitude" by Gabriel García Marquez. (but they didn't change my life at all. I just liked them)

    I agree with you Gabriel... it depends on each other's particular moment. Exactly the same happened to me with Herman Hesse!!!

    Regards,

    When I was a kid my mum read Maria Elena Walsh's stories to me before bedtime. Cuentopos de Gulubú, Dailan Kifki, I just loved them and I still do. I don't have kids but if I ever do, I'll read these books to them because they are so amazing. That's how my love for reading started.

    A book I recommend though it's not easy to find is "Una historia de crecimiento espiritual". It's a sort of biography from a girl in Corrientes, Argentina. Excellent book!

    Talking 1984, George Orwell

    George Orwell's 1984. Profound and scary book indeed. I totally recommed it, specially for those who have problems to see life 'beyond the evident'. Warning: No suitable for PARANOICS...ha, ha!!!

    I also enjoyed Tolkien's books, but not Sylmarillion (sorry ). They didn't change my life, but now, with the movies I think I'll remember 2000-2010 as the decade of The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter (no mariacecilia, I'm not kidding ). That's because I met my wife, then I got married and my children were born this decade, and I have enjoyed both books and movies with my family. They are not so philosophical, but they are... exactly, enjoyable.

    "Animal Farm" also by Orwell, is a book you can read in one day and it's a real gem. I read it when I was 18 and it was truly an eye opener for my non-political standpoint at the time...

    Somebody mentioned "the catcher in the Rye", I loved the book when I first read it, and I would probably have read it again, but after spending a whole semester at school analyzing each and every word, I simply got tired of it and shelved it forever.

    Oh! One novel by JD Salinger I did like was Franny and Zoey. I think he had only a few novels published and this one is even more interesting that Catcher in the Rye!
