Today's '30 Day Challenge' request is asking me to commit literary infidelity of monstrous proportions against some of the most magnificent books I've read. Out of all the books I've read which had lasting impacts on my life journey, I'm supposed to pick one?? umm..ok. Click here, here, here, and here to see other books I enjoyed tremendously.
One book which I particularly enjoyed was by Swiss-German author, Herman Hesse's 'Narcissus and Goldmund' (1930). It is an incredible story with many life lessons for friendship, adventure, conformity, freedom, and truth. The book has been described as a raging battle between flesh and spirit. It appealed to me on so many levels; made me question my path, and even brought me to tears at different points in the story - but that is not special, I tear up easily!
Anyway, you can sample the book here from Amazon. You can also check out wikipedia's blurb on the book.
