It is drab and raining here today with the promise of two more days of the same. I was not feeling very inspired to come up with a Monday Discussion today. But thankfully, Elizabeth the Intern was here and she had a great idea. It's one I have done before, but not for years.
So the question is, is there a book you read when you were younger that you did not like, but re-read as an adult and loved?
I will go first. I read To Kill a Mockingbird in high school and liked it just fine, but when I re-read it as an adult, I absolutely loved it. I understood Atticus Finch and his dilemma much better the second time around. We get the story through Scout's eyes only, and since she is a kid, she doesn't articulate everything that is really going on, only what she sees and notices. As a kid myself reading the novel, I took everything Scout said as the whole story, but as an adult, I knew how to read between the lines more.
What about you? For today's Monday Discussion share an experience you have had where a book changed for you by reading it at a different point in your life.
