How many of you cried when Sadie died? I'm not too proud to admit that I am one.
I have to admit that Mr. King has brought a tear to my eye and a lump to my throat on more than one occasion in his books.
A mark of how well he brings his characters to life and gets us to believe in them, I suppose.
Welcome to the SKMB
It wasn't that one, but there's one in The Talisman that I find absolutely devastating.
I didn't cry, but the room did get a little dusty.
...sure I did, and have no qualms about admitting it....I may be a clod, but I'm a clod that has a tender heart....
Didnt cry but was more pissed would be a better description of my feeling atvthe time.
I'm not ashamed to admit that there have been numerous times that I have had eye leakage while reading a Stephen King book. I think I'm allergic to the pages.....
No, not for this book but I did for a couple others... Lisey's Story and The Green Mile.
Joyland, The Talisman and Duma Key were sad, too, but no sniffling, haha. I think the mood the reader is in can make a huge difference.
I was more pissed than sad. Tough moment in book. She seemed so innocent helping to fight for her man's crusade. And she gets the short stick by dying.
Btw, Moderator you might want to put some spoiler alerts on this thread. This is a key revelation of the book.
Added spoiler note to thread title.
Thanks, Flakes! I was wondering if I should have requested that earlier when I saw the thread title. You're on top of things!!
