The books that changed your lives

Earlier this week, we asked the good folk on Twitter and Facebook which books helped change their lives. Here are some of their suggestions.

The Alexandria Quartet by Lawrence Durrel

Anything by Kurt Vonnegut.

The World According to Garp by John Irving

Moon Palace by Paul Auster

Thirteen Men Who Changed the World by H.S Vigeveno

The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon

What do you think of the books on this list? Did any of them change your life? Which other book did? We’d love to hear your thoughts and recommendations.
