Books that reduce you to tears
Ever read a book which reduced you to tears? Sad ones, that is, not the tears of boredom.
I'll get us started;
Fluke by James Herbert
Old Yeller by Fred Gipson
Marley & Me by John Grogan
...I am starting to see a pattern emerge here. Perhaps I lack the emotional capacity to cry for anything other than a dog.
Although The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold was sad, I personally thought that the second half of the novel was too weak to induce crying.
What I have shown you is reality. What you remember... that is the illusion.
