A little while ago I lent my cousin my favourite book to read. I told her how much I loved it and that I thought she would really enjoy it. A couple of weeks later I saw her and asked how she liked the book. She told me she found it slow, boring and only managed to read the first chapter. Needless to say I was a little disapointed and confused.

How can I have such strong feelings towards a book while another person can read it and feel nothing? Makes us connect so mentally and emotionally with certain stories?

What are your favourite books and why? Why did you relate so deeply to them?
