I ADORE Reepicheep. And Puddleglum.
Without a doubt the most devastating book I have ever read is "Vanished" by Mary McGarry Morris, read it about 20 years ago and I still think of it now and then.Also the haunting novella "The Long Walk" by Stephen King (as Richard Bachman)-think of it every time I drive on I-95.
Just last week I finished reading "A God in Ruins" by Kate Atkinson on an airplane. It was the best book I've read in a while, but I was grateful that no one seemed to notice that I had tears streaming down my face for much of the flight.
Hi, I'm new. I was devastated by The Bell Jar Because, as a kid I didn't know her fate. Then 1984. The worst was Sophie''s Choice, I could NOT read Go Set a Watchman because I couldn't face the destruction of Atticus. There are so many! I agree with Kite Runner and Night. Goodbye Elie Weisel.
