Day 1 – Favorite Stand Alone Book

I have been intending to start this one for quite some time. I just hope that I don’t stop this one like I did with the letter challenge. Taking inspiration from Sucheta’s lovely blog, here I begin my 30 Days Book Challenge. You probably won’t find this list online since it is a mixture of multiple lists.

Acts of Faith by Erich Segal

This book, I read many years back and though I don’t remember things in detail, I absolutely enjoyed it. I learnt a lot about the Jewish culture. Erich Segal has portrayed the struggle while choosing between religion and forbidden love, beautifully.
I particularly remember the climax, a conversation I read and reread multiple times. I read it to my friends, because it was so beautiful. But I realised that one cannot understand its beauty unless you go through the entire book. They all gave me the straight face. 😛
People say, Love Story was Erich Segal’s best book. I can never agree. I have read both and Doctors. But nothing beats this one. And so far, no other book has managed to the top of my Stand Alone list after Acts of Faith. 🙂
What would be your favorite Stand Alone Book? I would love to read more.
