What book would best describe who you are?
A theme in a book, a certain character, or the setting the story takes place. It doesn't really matter, just explain why that book best describes who you are.
That is the most difficult question in the world. I am unable to answer it.
Quite an interesting question, and at that, one difficult to answer. I recently read Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk, and while I do not have a multiple personality disorder (I think...), I related a lot to the main character, as well as Tyler Durden. To be honest I wouldn't ever say one book could ever come close to describing me, more the collection of books I have related to on some level. Tweak, by Nic Sheff could describe me, except a large portion of that book focuses on methamphetimine, and that particular nuance doesn't really describe me in the slightest. If I had to answer the question, as it is word for word, I would have to say that Ender's Shadow, by Orson Scott Card, come's the closest. The main character's thought process, and his actions are so very similar to mine that it was scary. Bean's mantra, "Know think choose do", made incredible sense to me, given any context.
Well I know--I know this is going to sound self-serving--and I swear I don't mean it that way. A book, A Distant Calling, authored by me--best describes who I am because there is a lot of me in the protagonist. She is alone in the world, no family, meets her true love blah blah blah
@Duffsmom, that makes a lot of sense.
There is always a lot of the author in the book.
How can one write without putting your own perspective of the world and what is good and bad in the book?
But "the brothers Karamazov" from Dostoyevski is one masterpiece in which 3 totally different views of the world, are portrayed so well. It is done so well that you have no clue what the authors own opinion might be. Except that he must be wise, have a lot of empathy and almost no ego.
I would say that John Galt, from Atlas shrugged by Ayn Rand, comes close. although John Galt is more extrem or perfect to this ideal. But it certainly is something I strive to be.

How would you describe God?Whatever your view of the Creator, Divine or Absolute, or if you feel there is nothing of the sort, I would like to know! If you believe in God, what is He like? If a person asked you, 'Who is God?' or 'Where is God?', what would you answer?
