    ...exactly!....these are the kind of folks that populate MY little burg....the names and accents are different-but we all share a common bond, reality & fiction, of what makes us tick-the simple things, both good and evil that makes us what we are.....

    Heck yeah. Mr. King has regularly made me cry for years. JOYLAND rated one of the hardest cries, and totally unexpected.

    I thought the ending of The Dead Zone was sad. Otherwise, a great page turner.

    Only at the last page.

    Seeing how his quest started and what Roland is I was prepared for even more heartbreak than we got.
    I was not expecting the open ended nature of the ending and the invitation it brings though.

    It was a great relief.

    The last King book which made me cry a bit was Doctor Sleep because of the ending with Dan and his father. It reminded me of something that happened to me.

    The last book made me cry when Jake died. I actually set the book down for a couple of days when the narrator said he'd die. Because I was told in advance I got upset before I should have. I found that darn narrator that started coming out and saying when they'd die, killed the story for me. It made me read on with a feeling of dread. I would have preferred to just read it without knowing. Even Sheemie! He just mentions it nonchalantly and I am like, you have got to be kidding me. I hate you narrator! Definitely helped make a lot of things anti-climatic for me, in the book.

    I wouldn't say I cried but a single tear rolled down my cheek while I stared stoically into the distance. I would say that happened about 5 times during my association with Mr. Kings books. The reign/rain of King...

    Oh, yes! I sure didn't expect it and it hit me hard.

    Stephen King books should have "tissue box" ratings. ;)

    I cried when
    he killed off Jake for the last time.
    The book changed for me after that. I was less invested in the story. For part of me it was just too much and I checked out. I put the book down a lot more after that. It became a long read.

    Oh I cried buckets. But then got to where we learn there are other worlds than these.

    Strangely enough I only cried my eyes out the second time I read it.

    No you aren't. Eddie made me throw the book on the floor and cry for 10 solid minutes. I was angry and upset. It was hard to continue, but I'm glad I did.
