Week 8 A Book that has Influenced Your Life
I really thought about this week’s question. This kind of questions always make me nervous. If the question was about favorite books, it would be easy to answer. But talking about a book that has influenced “YOUR LIFE” is a very intense topic. It’s not as easy as talking about your favorite book or writer or movie or people. At least it’s not easy for me.
As I said, I really thought about it and my answer is The Blind Owl by Sadegh Hedayat. In fact I can say that there hasn’t been another book that comes closer to influence my life than this one. It’s so dark, so pitch black that it soaks you up and that darkness starts to devour you from the first page till the last. Every page makes it hard for you to breath and I mean it! You don’t enjoy your life while reading it. The book is like a nightmare, yet it’s one of the amazing masterpieces in literature.
And yes, this book influenced my life big time. It effected my life, effected how I feel, how I think. It’s more than one of my favorite books.
