Unless you're particularly emotional, it takes a good book to bring you to tears. You have to be able to really connect with the character's and sympathize with them to become emotionally involved to the point of crying. (I know a lot of people who cried in Harry Potter 7... honestly I think I was a bit confused and emotionally detached when I read that one, didn't shed a tear).
So what are some books that have made me cry?
The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman
The ending was so tragic, I wept. Granted, I was quite young when I read this for the first time and didn't cry at all on the reread. But oh, it was so sad!
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Such a beautiful story... but a very tragic one. It's established right from the onset that it's going to be a sad, teary book. Lots of tears from me!
Through A Glass, Darkly by Jostein Gaarder
When I read this book, I enjoyed the ideas but sometimes found myself a bit bored. I was actually incredibly shocked with myself after reading the final sentence. Suddenly everything just clicked and I cried and cried... and cried :(
Obviously, different things are going to set different people off. What books make you cry? Ever read a book that people have told you is really sad and just didn't feel it?
