Had to think about this - I cried at lots of films - but a book that did make me cry was Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. So sad at the end and dramatic as he is going tothe guillotine. :(

:cry: The one book that has me cry really hard is THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE, man wow. I could not stop crying especially with that one part when she is getting pregnant, I know I could never do that. But when you do read it, have some tissue next to you. :mrgreen:

books which made me cry

Hello!

I'm a newbie and have just dropped a quick introduction into the newbies thread.

I find I'm much more likely to cry at a book than a movie- it's a much more personal experience and given the time usually involved I'm much more invested in the characters by the end of a book compared to the end of the movie.

So, off the top of my head...

* The Amber Spyglass- I think I wept through the last fifty pages. I also remember reading them ever more slowly as I desperately didn't want it to end.
* Flowers for Algernon- what a wonderful, thoughtful book about how society ostracizes both ends of the bell curve.
* The Old Man and the Sea
* Goodbye, Best Friend by Cherie Bennett- has anyone else ever heard of this?! It's a cheesy children's book about a young girl with cystic fibrosis and it used to make me bawl.

There have been many. The first and most memorable though, was Black Beauty. As a child and a horse-lover this book broke my heart, especially poor Ginger.

One book that made me cry was Nights of Rodathe by Nicholas Sparks .... read it in an afternoon and cried at the end.

Does it matter if it's fiction or non fiction?

Non fiction, definitely Codependent No More by Melody Beattie, cried through the whole freaking book...fiction, Lover Eternal by J. R. Ward, best cry ever :) 2nd best cry would be Deathly Hallows...

Yes there have been two that I can think of off hand.

Tuesday's with Morrie by Mitch Albom was one that made me tear up a few times while reading.
Another is called Oceans Apart by Karen Kingsbury. Both were such heart warming stories and both were very hard to put down.

I am a sensitive person, so it is common for me to cry for many books but I think the first book which had me in tears was probably "Love Story"written by Erich Segal.

I cry just about every time I read a book. The ones that have gotten me the most were any of the Nicholas Sparks books.

The Light Between Oceans made me cry at the end. It was very difficult not to.

Got to admit that I very nearly cried at the end of "Tale of Two Cities". Fantastic book, probably my favourite Dickens. :D
