Suggested by Barbara H:
I was wanting to try a certain author and wished I knew someone who had read her works so I could get a recommendation when it occurred to me that having a “YOU ask the question” Booking Through Thursday might be fun. Each participant could ask a question they’ve wanted to discuss with other readers. Perhaps, like me, you’d like a recommendation of a certain author’s best work, or perhaps you LOVE a certain genre or series but no one else you know does and you’d just like to discuss it with someone. Or perhaps you want to try a new genre and would like recommendations from seasoned readers.
It would help if everyone put some idea of the question or topic in their response comment here rather than just saying, “My post is up” so that those who can’t get around to everyone can see what the topics are and get to those which most interest them.
Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!
My question is: Is there a book that, as a teenager, made you think differently from how you had thought before?
The reason I am asking is that I just re-read Brave New World by Aldous Huxley which, despite, or maybe because of, its dystopian themes made me think differently, or maybe I should say more, about the relations between men and women, how we look at sexual relationships and how our consumer society is shaping us. It was one of those books that left me forever changed.
