I am just having one of those weeks — seriously, it’s like my week is manifestation of Murphy’s Law, and the idea of me writing something new is laughable. So here’s a variation of a post I did a year ago — we’ve got some new regulars in the comments, and I’d like to hear what you all say.
Anyway. . .
This was asked awhile ago on some Facebook group I belong to and I thought the answers were interesting enough, I’d ask you:
If you can remember, what was the first book that destroyed you? (that is, which book left you an emotional wreck?)
For me, it was either: Where the Red Fern Grows (which I read most of several times, and all of a couple of times); The High King by Lloyd Alexander between the deaths and goodbyes, I still can’t do it dry-eyed; or Bridge to Terabithia — I can’t tell you anything about the plot (there were 2 kids, 1 girl and 1 boy, right?), the characters or anything, and I read it 2-4 times — all I can remember is emotional devastation.
Looking forward to hearing from you. Share the emotional scars we all know you have. 🙂
