|What''s The First Book That Made You Cry?|
Hello, and welcome to Tuesday's Question. This is the first Tuesday's Question I've written in a long time, so I'm rusty, but here goes, (Although, I know you already read it.)
What's the first book that ever made you cry? Feel free to the replace "cry" with "laugh," either word is fine, whatever emotion you felt the strongest from a book for the first time.
Frank Kafka, once wrote, "A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."
What book helped break the "frozen sea' in you?
I know this is a tough question to ponder, or at least it was for me, so take your time, because you can come back whenever you wish.
Alright, it's my turn to answer this question. Note: The first book to make you cry doesn't have to be a children's book.
The first book that made me cry was Stuart Little, by E.B.White, although it might not count, because my mother read it to my brother’s and I when I was six years old, so when I think about it, Stuart Little may be the first book that made my brother's laugh or cry, because tears rolled down my face when Stuart swirled down the kitchen sink. All of E.B. White's books made me laugh and cry, so maybe this answer is not the best. But, it was the first book I remembered when I thought about this question, or one of them anyway.
That being said, the first novel I read that made me cry was Watership Down, written by English author Richard Adams, and I'm sorry, but I have to include The Outsiders, by S.E. Hinton as well, because I'm not sure which one made me cry first, and both novels affected me in a profound way.
Actually, it had to have been The Outsiders that first cracked the ice in my soul, because I read it in Junior High School, I think I remembered Watership Down first, due to an unpleasant experience I had when I was a freshman in high school.
I respond to all comments, but please feel free to respond to each others answers. I like to respond quickly to Tuesday's Question, but unfortunately I have to interview Brad Pitt today, so my response may take longer than usual, but I promise I will respond. Thank you for leaving a comment. I cannot wait to read your answers. ( I have a confession to make, I don't really have an interview with Brad Pitt. I have a Doctors appt. and I'm bringing a book.)
Have a super fabulous day!
