Now that I am thinking about it, I have yet to find a book that has made me cry yet. This is weird because there are quite a few movies that can make me tear up. Looks like I need to add a sad book to the reading list.
One Small Step by Reginald Hill. Bizarre as it is, because it isn't a very tragic novella, I loved the little prologue he had with his characters, Dalziel and Pascoe, and the thought of what would happen should he die before ever getting to a point where the series has an end. It certainly got me a little teary eyed. Thief of Always by Clive Barker got me a little sad at the end as well.
hahaha this made my day. I read the first book for fun and... yuck. What the f*ck how did that get published it's almost like someone shat on a paper Although I do think it is mostly popular among the older females than the younger ones ^^
I almost cried reading Song of Achillies by Madeline Miller. The part where Achilles reacted to the death of Patroclus and then Achilles kept on holding his dead body to him while crying so badly was so very heartbreaking along with the ending. The clever part about it that Miller wrote the story from Patroclus' point of view and she never changed this even when Patroclus was killed by Hector.
I've only ever cried twice for books. The first was in "Black Beauty" when Ginger died (I thought it was so sweet and sad) and the second in "HP and the Order of the Phoenix" when Sirius Black died (Harry was just so upset it upset me )
In both books, it was emotional attachment to a character and the disbelief that they would die. In most books, I can predict what will eventually happen, but in these I didn't see it coming.
Can I count mine in? xD I mean, I've never read a book that made me cry, till I began writing mine. I don't want to give it away because I do plan to publish it after my friend and I edit, so I'll just say that the end of part one, no matter who you are, I promise you it will make you cry.
The Kite Runner. Never has a book moved me to tears as much as that one. So many parts are so beautifully and simply written, while others are so touching in a human way you can't do anything else but cry.
The book, "All quiet in the western front" made me very emotional.The suffering of the Russian POWs and the suffering of the protagnist and his family, it just made want to go into the book and help them in whatever way I can. I was very sad when Dobby died!
