  •  Two sad shorts have long reverberations (6+ / 0-)

    for me.
    All Summer in a Day by Ray Bradbury and Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes (not the novel, however).
    Both are about cruelty and loneliness which reveals something about me I suppose. I'm not sure what the revelation is since I have not felt particularly lonely since my years of teenage angst. That's when I read those stories, which probably has something to do with it. I still love them now that I'm a cute old person.
