Booking Through Thursday asks — What’s the saddest book you’ve read recently?
Hmm, I have to say…I don’t know. I’m going to interpret loosely and name several books that were emotional reads for me even if they were not necessarily sad books.
Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger was sad but I think that it had more to do with the acts of the characters than anything specific in the book that made me misty eyed. I just felt sorry for everyone, with the exception of one character which was a nice bright spot. However, The Time Traveler’s Wife, now that was a sad book. I also found Rooftops of Tehran by Mahbod Seraji to be an emotional read as well. I think I’m going to stop there otherwise I could be here all day.
