The Obvious

Best books are the ones which put into words what we already know...
Is what Changi once told me and I think he was quoting someone as usual. I think I kind of agreed with the logic, at least then I did because if you think of it when we read something and really agree with what's written then it's hard to build an alternate perspective. Soon it's even hard to imagine that you ever thought differently. So in essence it feels like we knew it all along.. but did we? May be that's the beauty of a good book that it makes us convince ourselves that the whole idea is our brainchild...

Obvious Sells!


  1. you can google it.. the statement shows up only in your blog.. ;) so thanks for giving me credit :)

  2. Aren't they just good books, that make you feel good ? Aren't the best books those that introduce to you a world so new that you never knew yet so enchanting that you are pulled into it ?
    Isn't that why people loved HP or LOTR or in my case, The Hungry Tide ?

  3. The world might be new but the feelings/thoughts it generates could be familiar...
