The Book I Like The Most
Life for most of us is pretty hectic. Nothing exciting or adventurous ever seems to happen. The solution to this is to read books.
Books are an important medium, suitable for all age groups. Even elders read books to escape from their hectic schedule sometimes.
A book that makes a person smile and relieves the boredom and dullness is worth reading. Today it is said that books are not about reading alone, but also for gaining some useful knowledge from them.
Some days back, the Book Fair was held in Pragati Maidan. I, along with a few of my friends went to purchase books. Although I purchased many books the book I liked most was in English by Mrs. Gaskell. It was a fiction book- Ruth. It has been published by J.M. Dents and Sons Ltd. It was first published in the year 1967, and since then it has been republished every year.
Since I had heard so much about Mrs. Gaskell’s work. I knew that Ruth would not disappoint me which was true enough.
Ruth, the heroine of the book deals with a love affair at fifteen which brings humiliation and a life of secrecy for the little girl as she is reduced by the man of upper class society.
This story also reflects that the classes appear in every country be it India or any other country. It is one of the world’s most familiar stories, but the author has treated a very sober theme with freshness and with considerable courage having regard to the time (the time of England revolution) and the theme (An unwed girl with a child).
It not only used to happen then, but now also it continues i.e., the exploitation of the weaker class by the upper class.
After reading this book, I have decided that I will work for the rights of women.
So, I can say that this book has changed my whole outlook towards the life.
