5. Tuesdays with Morrie (Mitch Albom) – Sixteen years after Mitch has Morrie as a college professor, he sees him on Nightline and pays him a visit. Mitch discovers his college professor has Lou Gehrig’s disease and spends every Tuesday with Morrie where he learns lessons love, values, acceptance, and happiness.
4. Fahrenheit 451 (Ray Bradbury) – This futuristic story reinvents the fireman. Instead of putting out fires, they create fires by burning books. This is to enhance the ethics of society through pleasure and anti-intellectualism. However, the main character questions the world he lives in when he meets a gentle girl who challenges his own happiness.
3. The Great Gatsby (F. Scott Fitzgerald) – Jay Gatsby spends his entire life trying to win the heart of a woman he knew years ago. Many themes come from this tale, but the greatest might be of man’s aspiration to start over.
2. The Count of Monte Cristo (Alexandre Dumas) – This coming of age story presents us with a man who has been wrongly accused and seeks revenge. This book can teach you about your potential to bounce back from hard times.
1. The Alchemist (Paulo Coelho) – This story is a metaphor for life and what you desire to create or do. The main character travels to Egypt to look for buried treasure but shows us that we are the designer of the future we want.
