    I loved Little Women. i must have read it a million times in spanish and english, and I lived the movie too.. it was exactly how I imagined them.
    Sense and sensibility was great too, but I liked the movie better.

    Default "The secret"

    I think one of the most interesting films I've seen so far is "The Secret" (my best mate bought it for me some days ago while in America). It's got a very inspiring message. However, Do you truly really actually believe quantum physics could provide a theoretical framework for the film's message?

    Look forward to reading your comments.

    Wink Re: A book that has changed your life

    I´ve heard about The Life of Pi, I would like to put my hands on it. The books that have changed my life so far are those by Ucranian Brazilian resident Clarice Lispector, I know for sure they have been translated in many languagens and recently in Spanish Argentina> trying to translate the titles here . One apprenticeship or The book of pleasures or joys, A life breath, The apple in the dark...

    Saludos a todos!

    I am a reader of Salinger. The Catcher in the Rye follows me forever; and I was just delighted with Franny and Zoe.

    I'll never forget Phoebe and her role in the story, though. I guess people should build one little Phoebe inside. For life!

    Saludos,

    Eliana

    This may sound funny but Cujo by Stephen King changed my life. I read that book at a very young age and it captivated me in way, that no fictional novel to this day has done. It was my first and is my favorite Stephen King novel.

    For me it was the movie Jaws. Being from Hawaii we spent a lot of time at the beaches. I had no fear of the water until I saw that movie! Afterwards and even now I am mindful of going too far out. I am always within running distance of escaping should I see Jaws!!!

    For me it was Rayuela (Hopscotch) by Julio Cortazar. If you haven't read it, I recommed you to do it!

    I really loved that book! I think that Charlie's character, and the way this book is written, help us to understand and feel the conflict between the being, the wish of being and the lost, and how the lost of that "thing that made us special" can affect our way to see and experience the world.

    Many books changed my life: Memoirs of a Geisha, The little prince, Oscar Wilde's anthology (Oscar Wilde ♥)

    What kind of books do you like @barbyeary?
