I read Flowers for Algernon recently, and I *cough* shed a few tears. This lead me to wonder if anyone else did so, over any book. This includes fiction and nonfiction, so I figured that it belonged here.

1) Have you ever wept because of a book?

yes

2) Have you ever nearly wept at a book?

yes

3) If you answered "Yes" to 1 or 2, which book was it?

Whe I was little and read "Julie of the Wolves" by Jean Craighead George that made me cry. It really stands out in my memory. Also, "White Fang" by Jack London made me cry.

I'm sure that there were more, but these two books the most

4) Isn't Flowers for Algernon so, so sad?


The only thing that sustains one through life is the consciousness of the immense inferiority of everybody else, and this is a feeling that I have always cultivated.
-The Remarkable Rocket, Oscar Wilde
