I started valuing relationships in my life much more then I used to value them earlier. This story filed me with a new spirit of living life at its fullest in every moment. I found this story an extraordinary attempt to face the challenges of life by an ordinary human being with exceptional will power and zeal to live against all odds. My life changed a lot due to this novel earlier I was a free- bee and paid no attention towards uncertainties of life in fact I use to get afraid of small problems of life such as my term exams and assignments. I never thought that life can be so uncertain and anything can happen any time so we all should value each moment of life and be strong enough to face the uncertainties of life. When this incident happened to Jean, I was very young to understand the real meaning of life and the hardships of life. When I read this novel I understood the meaning of life with hardships and the ways by which one can overcome these hardships of life. Life is an unsolved mystery as ever believed by everyone and no one can unfold the chapters of life before they become realities of life (Phelan, 2012). This novel changed my life and my outlook towards life. I started treating life more seriously and tried to make meaning of everything that happens in life. I became more emphatic towards other human beings especially towards my family and friends. I tried to make them happy in whatever way I could do so. This story shook me from within, as on one hand I became more caring and responsible. On the other hand I was frightened of losing my life and family and the beautiful and memorable moments we spent together. I wanted to be like Jean in life that was full of life though life has betrayed him in a way. I wanted to follow his approach to never give up in life and face the hardships with full zeal and motivation.
