Sometimes you can be lucky enough to find a book that changes you forever.
I’ve always been a huge reader – I love it. Although these days I do tend to read more non-fiction than fiction.
However one book in particular that has stayed with me since I read it is “Kafka on the shore” by Japanese author Haruki Murakami.
Some of the content was difficult to read at times (as in subject matter). However it was so completely different, and utterly fascinating, that it is impossible to forget.
It’s also the first book that I have read that heavily featured a particular piece of music.
Piano Trio, Op. 97 (Archduke) by Beethoven
After finishing the book I felt compelled to find this piece of music, and listen to it. And I am so glad I did. It immediately became my favourite piece of classical music.
