    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 :encouragement:

    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.

    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.

    Thanks, Flakes! I was wondering if I should have requested that earlier when I saw the thread title. You're on top of things!!

    I have spilt tears on occasion, i'll admit. Don't remember if Sadie was the reason but King can make me cry, laugh and look under my bed. He is the only author that manages all three for me. A testimony to how good he is!

    I shed a single tear while staring stoically into the distance. That book spoke to me in the same way that all his other books did.

    I absolutely fell in love with Sadie. She was so sweet, funny, brave and goofy - no wonder Jake was so sprung.

    I cried when Sadie died. And I cried again when Jake was figuring things out at the end. Jakes is one of my favorite good guys. That book just blew me away. It was when I realized that King was not just a great author but a great genius. And he keeps surprising his readers all the time. He's one of the most well-rounded writers of all time. Just a wide breadth of books! Oh and another favorite book is On Writing. I think everyone who loves Stephen King should read that book.

    Any aspiring writers need to read this book, too. =D

    Absolutely. I have learned a lot from Stephen King and I have much more to learn but On Writing is sitting right next to me as I work on the second in my Montana Wylde series. I cannot tell you how many times I have referred to that book. I will never be the writer Stephen King is but he inspires to keep trying. :)

    Hello, this is my first post to SK forum, first ever anywhere actually.
    Im reading his “On Writing” Book and just completed the Dick and Jane excercise he talks about in section 5 ending on page 173. He ask us to let him know how it went by sending email to I was unable to find a direct email address to forward my work to. Did you do the excercise and if so where did you send it? Thanks for you help.

    Welcome Faye! For privacy reasons, I removed your email.

    And sorry to say, Stephen is no longer accepting the Dick and Jane stories to look at. But, we're glad you're here anyway and there are lots of great topics for discussion. Join the fun!
