What book influenced you or changed your life? How did it influence/ change you?
That's an easy one! J.R.R. Tolkien's The Silmarillion definitly changed my life, along with The Lord of the Rings. He created an entire world, based on Old Scandinavian tales and Old English and thereby reinvented the fantasy-genre. He wrote an Ur-fantasy book, that contains so many links to so many different old books, like the Bible and Beowulf.
It just showed me how much more writing can be than just words. Tolkien put so much morality and ethics into his works. He has inspired so many people with his work and has shown that fantasy can be a new way of looking at reality!
