Jonathan Livingston Seagull
I found the name of the book a little strange when I heard it for the first time. But when I read it, I was astonished by the inspiring tale of persistence and dreams. What deeply touched me was also the passion with which the story is written. The remarkable details of the intricate movements of a seagull and the keen observations immediately tells how passionate the author is about flying. And it is visible in his other brilliant pieces of writing. But this book stays my all time favorite because it resonated deeply with my own hunger of being me and finding myself.
Other books of Richard Bach that I read and admired are: Biplane; Illusion; One; A gift of Wings; and Hypnotizing Maria.
