My brother bought me the book for my..17th? (maybe 18th) birthday. I had never heard anything about Sylvia Plath before that and I have to admit I let it sit in my room for a good few months before picking it up. When I did however I read it the entire way through without interruption..
I would say it changed my life because it spoke to me on so many levels..I was in a very different place than I am now (thankfully) at that age and I think it was the first time I felt like somebody understood me (I know how lame that sounds! - Teenage angst!) but it really did make a major impact on me.
What books changed your life? xo
