History boys

The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - that you'd thought special, particular to you. And here it is, set down by someone else, a person you've never met, maybe even someone long dead. And it's as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.

  1. Ah, totally. I'm still surprised *every* time it happens... Writers who do that to me a lot are J.K. Rowling, Jonathan Safran Foer, and C.S. Lewis. It can be kind of freaky sometimes :P Always that feeling of 'No WAY! I thought *I* was the only one who ever experienced that!' Lol.
