    Default Which King book (if any) made you cry? ***SPOILERS***

    I rarely, if ever, cry whilst reading books (or watching films, for that matter). But I have to say that the one Stephen King book where I cried was Pet Semetary when

    Gage was killed
    . I found the book to be one of the most desolate and despairing of King's books. When I read it, I wasn't married and didn't have kids. Now that am married and have 2 small children, I'm not sure that I'd be able to read it again.

    Having said that, I think Pet Semetary is one of King's finest achievements. It's a book that has the courage of its convictions and not once does it try to sugar coat its message. It's almost 20 years since I last read it, but I can still remember the last line, and it still give me a chill:


    "Darling," it said.

    I don't think tht I've ever read any story that made me cry. I'm just not one to cry easily.

    Good Lord, there's been a few, in fact. Right off the bat, the ending to "Cujo"

    where the son dies in the car
    .....After that there's just no way to put the story back on track. It just leaves you with the most empty feeling. I also cried (mostly in relief) at the end of "The Girl who Loved Tom Gordon". I got 3 kids and I get totally choked up when I think of ever being separated from them and the gut wrenching relief of the reunion at the end.
    The

    death of Scott's older brother
    in "Lisey's Story" was pretty emotional too. Most of all, I think I've been brought to tears of laughter by good ole Unka Steve. I can remember laughing til I cried when I read the part about the footprint in dog**** in "Carrie".....about God being able to get sheep's asses clean in "Tommyknockers"......the **** weasels in "Dreamcatchers".....The list goes on and on. Those are the most treasured moments I have of reading that man's work.

    I agree totally with your comments about Pet Semetary. Also, the scene where

    Lou digs up Gage's coffin and is holding him in his arms always brings me to tears
    .

    Carrie, The Green Mile, Insomnia, Cell, Bag of Bones, and Tommyknockers have also brought tears to my eyes.
