Two saddest books i think I have read are 1984 and "a scanner darkly". At the end of 1984 when I read

"Forty years it had taken him to learn what kind of smile was hidden beneath the dark moustache. O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother."

I thought I was going to be sick... And in a scanner darkly when he became a burnt out shell of a man i felt the same way. I can face any hardship pain or humiliation as long as I am myself at the core . But the thought of losing my passion and my mind terrifies me. The living death that these characters had to face is the worst fate I could imagine
