A good book reflects the reader, as much as it illuminates the author’s texts
“Every book tells a different story to the person who reads it,” Goninan explained. “How they perceive that book will depend on who they are. A good book reflects the reader, as much as it illuminates the author’s text.”
Claire nodded in understanding.
“Now,” Goninan said, imagine a book that literally is different for each person who reads it.”
Janey frowned. “Do you men that the story I’m reading in The Little Country – I’m the only person who will read that particular story?”
Goninan smiled. “No, of course it isn’t. It’s magic.”
