I never cried when I read something, but The Road made me somewhat sad

'My Sisters' Keeper' - even when I reread it I still cry
'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' - It was Dobby and Fred that made me cry!
'The Book Thief' - a great book and it was so real it was sad

Though I can't say I'm too emotional, the book Zveniashie Kedri Rosii by rusiian writer Vladimir Meger impressed me a lot!

It may sound kind of bad but the only book I can really remember having tears streaming down my face was the end of Firewing. It is about a family of bats... so yeah kind of bad!

The book that made me cry and made me think about the whole month was "The Kite Runner" by Khalid Housenni think it's spelled like that. Well this book was amazing if anyone has read this beautiful novel send a reply. Also " The Brief Wonderous Life Of Oscar Wao" was sad it made me cry in the end. I recommend these novels to anyone.

How did I forget The Kite Runner ?I bought it in french for my husband as soon as I'd finished it and he loved it too.I recently watched the film adaptation of the book and while it could never beas good as the book it was a fairly accurate portrayal.

Well I really didn't like the film at all. It was like all the main parts of the book. For me the movie was plain, Have you read A Thousand Splendid Suns?

Yes,I read it a while ago, and enjoyed it.However I felt it wasn't as good as The Kite Runner.I was disappointed by the ending. Both books gave an amazing insight into Afgan history and culture.
As a women it was impossible not to identify with the women in a Thousand Splendid Suns.

As for The Kite Runner,you're right the film did concentrate on the main storyline.It could never portray adequately that horrendous journey to freedom which seemed to be everlasting when I was reading the book.
I usually hate film adaptations of books and really expected the worst but I sat though it remembering parts of the book and enjoyed it.
I should add in my defence that I'm starved of films in English on Reunion Island and this might have influenced my judgement :wink:

Not since I was a child, but I have to admit that Where the Red Fern Grows made me cry.

Yeah films are never better than books. If you liked both of thoose novels you should try out " The Brief And Wonderous Life Of Oscar Wao" by Junot Diaz this book also made me very sad.
