Day One. My favorite book.

This is my favorite stand alone book (aka not part of a series).

This book brought me to tears so many times. I'm a big fan of books that break your heart. This one stomps on it. I was depressed for days. This book definitely left me with a "What the hell is the point?!" feeling afterward. This might not seem appealing to you, but a book that can make you feel that much emotion is a wonderful thing.

The movie was utterly amazing too. Still one of my favorites but I can't watch it very often. See above re: heartbreaking.

It effected me so much that I'm afraid to pick up another book by him because I'm worried he'll do it to me again. I finally did cave and got one of his from the library. Hopefully it will be as amazing and as emotionally shattering as Atonement was.

One day, I hope to reread this. But even though I read it well over a year ago, I still don't think I can put myself through it again. I'd just cry the entire time.

This is a great challenge! I can think of one book that will apply to several of these categories for me. I'll be watching for the rest of your list.
