I was reading my book on the bus today and I realized something — some of my favorite books are really depressing. I like books that are full of angst and whininess and crying. Of course, I like lots of books that are happy and funny, but sometimes I really like to read a good wallow-y, sad-to-the-point-of-ridiculous book.
But I HATE movies like that. I regularly finish watching a movie and think, “well, that sucked. It was way too depressing.” I like my movies entertaining and/or sappy, not sad and depressing.
strange, isn’t it?
