Books are ever been the best friend of man. Relationship with them is simple enough to sieve through any course skulls out there. They don’t force, they don’t judge, they don’t argue. They just keep their perspective in front of you, believing it or not, acting on it or not is totally up to the reader. One might say they give the bad ideas to some readers but let me point out a crucial thing here. Book always give clear characters. Wright or wrong may differ for person to person. One might say reading too many crime fiction may make you a conspirator yourself but they forget there are good characters too in that same book. Which part you choose as your inspiration is totally up to you. Reading a book might make you want to be a copper and at the same time reading the same book might make other want to be a criminal. Choices differ. Taste differ. No fault of books. There are different genres. One for all moods. You want inspiration? Go for The Alchemist. You want motivation? Go for Oliver Twist. You want romantic? Go for persuasion. You want thrill? Go for Dr. Jackal and Mr Hyde. They all have a lesson. They all have essence of humanity ib them. How you evaluate is upto you. Books are the escape for the ones who want to be taken someplace else. Once you start a book you would become a part of it until you’d realize it’s the last page you are on and the people you have been interacting were just the characters.
