    It’s great to see you reading such great pieces of literature. We always see life through our own set of eyes, but reading novels help us to see life as a different person.

      Yes indeed. Excellent observation.
      There is much to be learned from literature and in many ways it’s what Kenneth Burke called an “imaginative rehearsal” for unknown situations. Literature helps us understand different points of view and also helps with showing how different people see the world. Not only that, but the act of trying to render thoughts onto a page, a la William Faulkner, is no mean feat.
