Top Ten Saddest Books
The Contenders: Page 3
It is about these people that live in space after a devastating nuclear war. 300 years later the government sends 100 juvenile delinquents to colonize Earth and see if it's safe. I can't spoil much more. This book series is very depressing.V 1 Comment
The end was really depressing and I cried a lot
I had a deep sadness after reading it
Prim and Finnick die. Why did I have to put this up this should be number 1 already
Wow... A list about depressing books and Wuthering Heights is ranked last -,- What is wrong with you people?
Basically depressing and shows the dark side of humanity without resorting to Sci-Fi plots
One of those books that stays with you. Undoubtedly a downer but the emotion that Hemingway pulls from the reader makes AFTA a true masterpiece.
The endings to the stories are either downers or bittersweet. It is still beautiful, but a different kind of beautiful when compared to the Hobbit or Lord of the Rings. I always preferred tragedies, and Of Turin Turambar is the best there is. - FrozenHatingPokefan
The book was so well written. So much tragedy in it, it was so sad. I loved the desperation of the character who was trying to save her friends little brother.
Why isn't it on the list? It is the paragon for "sad" books. Who could forget Landon's love for Jamie? Jamie's death isn't fictional. It could happen to anyone which makes it 100x more sad. I'm not gonna be a spoiler but this book is beyond perfect. If you haven't read it, read it. If you have, then read it again and vote if you agree with this.
