Client Question:  Favorite Book?

Quite a few of my readers have put in some requests to learn a little more about me, Kateland, the lady behind the linguistic lessons. While I tend to be a fairly private person on social media, I do understand the value of connecting with my followers on a professional level and I want you to feel comfortable talking to me. I think it is important to answer some personal questions from time to time so this week I’m going to start answering your personal questions!

This week a reader submitted the following question:

What is your favorite book and why?

The answer to this changes depending on my mood! I am primarily a fan of social science fiction. At the moment I would have to say my top three books are as follows:

1. The Road to Wellville – T. Coraghessan Boyle

2. MaddAdam series – Margaret Atwood

3. Brave New World – Aldous Huxley

You can make the argument that The Road to Wellville is not strictly social science fiction because it blends the real-life events that surround Battle Creek, Michigan during the height of Dr. Kellogg’s fame, but I find the story to be a striking commentary on how health communities cling to different social dogmas. Margaret Atwood is simply a master at inciting a sense of quiet fear with her prose; she has an uncanny ability to hint at the paths our current lives take in a global sense. This series certainly does not disappoint, but there are also rumors of an HBO miniseries in the works. Finally, Brave New World is a classic by the venerated Huxley. In this book, he discusses themes of drug use, human sexuality, psychology, and the need to belong even if you lose your identity in the process.

Now I’m going to turn around this week’s personal question on you: What is YOUR favorite book and why?

Feel free to include links to those books, because I’m always looking for my next read.

    I love all Nicholas Sparks books. I’m actually not a huge fan of reading books but I buy all of his books because I know that I will not be disappointed. So I guess I would say that I love reading love stories 🙂
