Life-changing books/movies

Hi!

Have you read any books or watched movies which changed your life forever?  

It was something after that you felt power to create big things, changed your point of view about the life or simply you wanted to be like a main character?


Have you ever experienced something like that?

If you really want to change for the better, read the Holy Quran, at least once

Hello Patryk,

This may not be an answer you are expecting, but, I have read books, but the only one that has and is continuing to change my life is, the Holy Bible. It is not just a book, but is the word of God that, as you read it, sets your mind and heart in the right direction, as God helps you to read and understand it. Jesus Christ loves you and desires to have a relationship with you, He is a life changer! :) God bless you!

One of my favorite books to read is called "Taming the Tiger" it is about a boy who was born in UK and adopted by his grandpa who is a Grand Master at Kung Fu. Every morning his grandpa makes him train without mercy in the ways of Kung Fu for 8-12 hrs, basically putting him through hell on earth. He becomes the youngest grand master in Kung Fu at 18 years old. He needs some money so he uses his ninja skills to steal a lot of money and get's caught and put in prison. Then a lot of stuff happens in his life and becomes a christian and gives up his life of Kung Fu. I could not put this book down. Hope you enjoy. I am always looking for Spanish partners if you want to talk sometime.

Patryk, when I attended high-school every second boy/girl in my school was a Tolkien fan. Ok, I exaggerate - every third.

May be you know "tolkienists" - who would gather in forests fight with wooden swords, compose songs, study Sindarin and consider 'human' as a serious offence? neighbouring community is role-playing fans and another neighbouring community is historical reconstructors (these consider themselves humans, don't sing sogs and don't study Sindarin)?

As result I knew many tolkienists.
Many of them became philologists or linguists since then and one became a rock-star.

As about me, yes, of course each book which impressed me in a good way has also changed me.

Hi!

Undoubtedly '1984' by George Orwell. I think that Orwell is a very forward-looking, because in a few pages describes our reality and our nearest future. I think that he is a visionary and he forces the lector to do a personal consideration about who we are, our identity like human being and let you reflect about our society and the system...that sometimes could distort ourself .

I highly recommend you to read if you haven't already :) 

Personally I caught Orwell's point of view and this consideration make me feel sometimes trapped in a dangerous system...for many aspects.

I wish you have a good reading! 

Bye :)
