Hahah, OMG, I cried and cried in this book! I cried when Walter died (and they buried him, and Wanda made that touching eulogy), I might have cried in the middle somewhere or when she was explaining to Ian why she has to go (maybe...it was a long time ago), and I definitely cried at what I thought was the ending...I remember I was SO pissed at Stephanie for having dared to kill off Wanda...it was painful, ahah. But then it was all good. =)
So I just finished reading The Host for the second time, and even though I knew the REAL ending, when I got to the part where she goes to Doc to give herself up, oh, I just bawled! And I was laughing at myself because I knew very well what the real outcome was, but I couldn't help but crying at that point.
Yes I did! I was sobbing and the tears were pouring down my face so hard I couldn't see to read! I couldn't bear to think that Wanda was gone forever and had so selflessly given Melanie her life back. Why do we feel such empathy for all Stephenie's characters? That is such a gift, to be able to draw people in to that extent.
