I don’t think there’s a story that – in it’s entirety – reminds of something in my life. There are characters I identify with, Jane Eyre, for example. Her struggle to assert her independence and be known for her intelligence and strength of her conviction is something I struggle with everyday. Her plainness and yes her belief that her looks are a detriment are something I also feel, which is why I took to her to well I think.

Another story that speaks to me, but in more matters of faith than in situation is The Last Question by Isaac Asimov. It’s such a simple story, so very simple and yet, I can’t help but be affected by it, every time I read it. Everyone needs to read it. I believe there is a copy of it online, Here. Read it, please.
