Are you more likely to cry because of a sad book, or a sad movie?

movie, i dont read sad books much

Definitely books. Books are much more personal to me because I don't have a 'set' view of them as stories via film.

A movie, considering I barely read.

Both, but it's been a while since I've cried while reading a book. The last one was 'April Fools Day'by Bryce Courtenay. It took me an hour to read the last few pages because I couldn't see through my tears. Very, very sad. But a great book. Read it.

The book, because you can relate to it so much more because it's much more realistic and you can visulise it in your own way.

Both. But it's easy to cry in books because you can interpret the characters yourself, but if movies have crap actors then it's all ruined.

probably movie

^thanks for your valuable input.

And movies. I cry because I guess I get more involved. REad "The Guardian". The end will probably make you cry.

i think both are as bad as each other!!

I don't cry much with either, but I've probably shed more tears while reading.

Definitely a sad book. I'm more deeply involved with the characters and their emotions when reading a story.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 4/24/05 - 10:40:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
I cry in both, but I cry more in books. I just find them sadder and I get more involved with books.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 4/25/05 - 6:59:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't cry at either. I cry at musicals instead.

oh god bridge to terabethia? that book sucked!
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 5/2/05 - 9:02:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
Book. The imagination shapes the plot and characters into things you relate with, which can make you feel more emotional over the plot. Movies SHOW you the exact appearances of everything, and leave less room for your editing.

For me, this question is pretty tough. I cry more at movies, but books do last longer. So, I dunno.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 5/2/05 - 9:09:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
sad movie... It is the combination of Sound, Sound track, and voice that tears me up more than a book... (although I must admit to crying during a few books... er wait... no... I haven't... I am WAY TOO cool for that)
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 6/13/05 - 6:27:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
Books. I usually laugh at sad movies.
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 7/15/05 - 11:13:19 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't often read sad books, the last time I can remember crying after finishing a book was when I was about 14. I don't really cry when watching films either, although you might see a tear rolling down my face when I'm watching a play at the theatre.

wow that's weird that you put "bridge to terebithia" for a pic on this question... That's what i first thought of when i read teh question
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 7/19/05 - 2:12:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
"bridge to terebithia" did make my cry
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 7/22/05 - 11:54:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
"My Dog Skip" always chokes me up.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 7/22/05 - 11:55:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
A movie would do it to me before a book.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Thursday 7/28/05 - 2:43:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
bridge to terabithia did make me cry also, so did a clockwork orange (book)... the only movie i've ever cried during was moon child, so book
