I was going through a very bad period in my life. After seeing me staring on to the horizon and sky, my friend gave a book called "The Positive Thinking" by Norman Vincent Peale to read. Once I finished reading it, believe me, my whole approach towards the life has changed. Now when ever any problem comes, I think of that. It says when you make a positive thinking always, it really happens and mentions an example like a poor girl aspiring for owning a piano and how she gets it and all. Please read that. It is not a story and no hero in that. But it helped many. My friend lost her only son. I got that book to her. Now I feel a tremendous change in her.

Have you ever read Les Miserables by Victor Hugo? I think it may be exactly what you are looking for. It's absolutely wonderful. I would suggest reading the abridged version, as the original is over 1,000 pages, most of which is out of date political talk. The abridged would stick to the heart of the story. It really is an excellent choice for struggles and adversity.

If you are looking for inspiration, then read 'The Secret'. This isn't a novel. This is a book on how to turn your life around by acknowledging the law of attraction and how it can make your life so much better in every way. I read it a few months ago and all I can say is my life is totally different now. If you are looking for a novel to read that is awe-inspiring, then read Jodi Picoult's "My Sister's Keeper".

It is true. You can Win by Dr. Shiv Khera is a good book. Did you read I am ok you are ok. It is a book in which the author says, if we are normal thinking and behaving people and others are also like that, how we should act, if we are ok others are not ok, then how to act, like that it goes on.
