Middlesex: This book was a turning point for me, I read it while I was in my junior year of high school. For me, an extremely sheltered person with a strong conservative upbringing, it was unnerving and unsettling at first, but it gave me a new perspective on the world, creating areas of grey where there had only been black and white before.
Les Miserables: This book was a test of dedication, as I read it pretty young. Though once I got into the rhythm of the writing I devoured it. It shows heartbreaking examples of the struggles of humanity: morals, poverty, justice, and hypocrisy are just some of the themes of this story. Rendered in careful and thorough detail.
