Picked up this interesting tag fro another blog

One book that changed my life:
Fountain Head - The determination shown by the lead character Howard Roark influenced me so much , that I Started thinking like him in some situations.

The book you have read more than once:
1. The Pillars of Earth - Ken Follet
2. Kane and Abel - Jeffery Archer
3. Fountain Head - Ayn Rand
4. Fish and Fish for Life - Stephen Lundin and Harry paul
5. Acts of Faith - Erich Segal

One book you would want on dessert island:

One book that made you laugh:
Inscrutable Americans - Anurag Mathur
The Department of Denials - Anurag Mathur

One book that made me cry:
Abridged version of the classic - Mayor of Caterbridge - Thomas Hardy
We read this book as a part of school english sylabus.
I have cried every time I read the chapter where Henchard leaves dies leaving behind a will which says
that Elizabeth Jane should not be told about his death, that he not be buried in consecrated ground, that no one should mourn for him, and that no one should remember him

One book you wish you had written:
Ponniyin Selvan - By Kalki
This books depicts the life of the kings and queens during the Chola period.
I wish I could go back to that era.

One book that you wish had never been written:
1996 batch - 10th std History book. It was such a big book and we had to study that for two years.
I guess after our batch the sylabus was revised and the book was made half the original size.
