Bringers of the Dawn, Barbara Marciniak.
OMG!! We must be kindred spirits. Who knew?
I didn't........ :)
I can't say a book has ever had that much of an effect on me. Books have entertained, books have taught....but as far as being life changing that would be quite a stretch. Maybe Green Eggs & Ham taught me at a small age to try new things?
"Life changing" ? Nope not even movies.
Stranger in a Strange Land. Robert Heinlien.
Also some of Stephen King's novels.
SiaSL had an impact on my as well.
Others that I suspect had a big influence
.Voyage of the Beagle (Darwin)
.Wealth of Nations (Smith)
.Essays Concerning Human Understanding (Locke)
.Fear and Trembling (Kierkegaard)
.The Prince (Machiavelli)
.Gulliver's Travels (Swift)
.Don Quixote (Cervantes)
.Le Morte d'Arthur (Malory)
.Martian Chronicle (Bradbury)
For a time all I could afford was libraries...and some did not have all the good classics....
Once you start reading early English Lit...you start speaking like them... What...where goest? What hither comes? Yes, the Light is good from the East.
No one book that I can think of.
Life changing? None that I can think of but for some reason "The Good Earth" made a lifelong impression on me.
All of them. :)
