Cormac McCarthy, Murakami, Ian McEwan, Banville, Margaret Atwood, Hunter S. Thompson, ahh...why did I start this list, there are just too many.
Wouldn’t go as far as to say “changed my life” but Wuthering Heights for a very specific reason. I re-read this book every year at midwinter and have a daydream where I cast and direct this powerful novel on film. Although there have been many attempts (Olivier chewing the scenery), I still don't think any director has successfully cast and captured the character Heathcliff (or the one that lives in my imagination). I’d like to lobby Peter Jackson to direct though – he’d be ideal.

Hi there, I'm an avid reader who tends to have about three books on the go at any one time. That way I can drop out of one world and into another as the mood strikes. A great book generates very real emotion and can shake, change and shape views.
