Most emotion you have ever thought whilst reading?
« on: June 17, 2011, 01:00:15 PM »
What is the most emotional moment you have experienced whilst reading a book?

Have you ever cried? Have you ever laughed?

P.S. Please you spoiler tags :)

Cried my eyes out in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
Spoiler for Hiden:
When Sirius died, the shock and it all happened so quickly. It was just too much, I cried so much my mom thought there was something actually wrong with me.
And also in The Book Thief
Spoiler for Hiden:
Not because it was so absolutely sad, but when the Jewish man came walking through having been freed from Dachau. It again was just too much.

Just last week, I blubbed after reading Little Fuzzy, by H. Beam Piper. Not because the ending was sad, but quite the opposite. Yup, I'm becoming the person who cries at happy endings.

I refuse to admit to the story that made me cry the worst, but most recently I got teary-eyed at the end of The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks.  Still haven't gotten the courage up to read the next book.  I'm afraid it won't be as good, even though I've been told the series is awesome.  I just can't imagine how you could top book one! :)

The one book that ever made me laugh until there were tears running down my face wasn't a fantasy or sci-fi novel, but it was "Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging" by Louise Rennison. That book was hilarious.

As for crying, I cried over "FEED" and "DEADLINE", but we all know that. :P

I... I don't remember the moment during Fool's Errand, but I also read it a good while ago now.

Feed hurt but I didn't cry, as a point of reference.

The only book I REMEMBER making me cry is The Road. That was, far and away, the most emotionally trying book I've ever read. Nothing else is even close.

Fantastic book. Didn't make me cry, though; that was one that I felt more emotionally blank over. <shrug> Not sure why.

This made me laugh. Or cry. Whichever is the more positive response ;-)

The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks, Shadow's Edge by Brent Weeks and Beyond the Shadow's by Brent Weeks

All of them had moments where I felt really emotional. Not just about deaths and losses, but about decisions and love and everything really. The reason I love that series is because it is just full of emotional conflict and if the reader can get involved in that then I think they will probably leave it feeling it is one of the best series out there.

Not Pornokitsch though... he doesn't like it. Therefore he does not have emotions or read the wrong book... he can choose which ;)

Feed I guess was hard, but I think because someone told me 'oh God... the ending', I was always expecting something to happen like that. So perhaps that switched me off / prepared me a little bit for it. It is amazingly well done.

Is it bad that a certain death in Dragons of Winter Night actually made me really sad?  I didn't even like the character through the first book, but by that point...

I have to agree on Order of the Phoenix.

Parts of The Name of the Wind make me grin like an idiot and laugh out loud, but that's mostly about the mischief making, and my personal reminiscing about my own trouble-making days.

Feed, as mentioned.

The Road made me emotionally blank too, not cry, but just OMG, like you get after some incredible movies (e.g. Black Swan)

Spoiler for Hiden:
Dobby's death made me cry

I think that's it to be honest.
