30 Day Book Challenge #Day 6

Welcome back to my 30 Day Book Challenge.

Today’s prompt is a book which broke your heart.

Now here we have a bit of a problem, as no book has broken my heart. I must have a heart of stone because, as pointed out by Oscar Wilde, I can read the death of Little Nell without laughing.

Hmm so…

I am going to go with John Steinback’s “Of Mice and Men”, not because I feel bad for George or Lennie but more because I feel for the old farmhand Candy, who is bullied by his co-workers into having his old dog shot.

“Of Mice and Men” was one of the set texts that were on the GCSE syllabus when I was at school as part of the Wide Read module. The set up was to read a 20th Century classic and a pre-century novel with connecting themes, so our teacher (no, not that one) select this and Thomas Hardy’s “Jude the Obscure”.

  1. Great prompt once again. I don’t think there’s any book that’s broken my heart but there are many books that leave me feeling sad at the end. I have yet to read Of Mice and Men.
