What's the sadest book you've ever read?

Like the title says.....

What's the sadest thing you've ever read?

Go Ask Alice. That was a great book. Sad, but great.

Re: What's the sadest book you've ever read?

I know what you mean. For some reason I just want to read a book that will give me a good long cry. When you feel that kind of emotion from a book you know its good. The problem is I don't usually cry from books

 Part of what happened in te book was sad, but I laughed A LOT. I didn't feel too bad after reading it.

Re: What's the sadest book you've ever read?

A Time for Dancing by Davida Wills Hurwin is a really good book about two best friends that is sad. Always and Forever, and Till Death Do Us Part by Lurene McDaniels are also great books that are sad but rewarding.
