Have you ever experienced a feeling of sadness when a book is reaching its end?
I have….. too many times. Because throughout the time I am reading a particular book, I am transported to a world of the author’s making. I get along with the characters of the book & share their lives – their happiness, sorrow, pain….
Many a times the characters of a book come to my dreams & I experience them from close quarters. I am transported to unknown foreign lands and sometimes to an era which I visualize through the words of the author. (And I bow down to the author who can make me visualize and feel the characters & their lives as if its real!!) I shed a tear or two if the protagonist die or is heart-broken, feel elated when there is a happy ending, feel thrilled when there is a suspense element and so on……
Usually, only after the story subsides in my mind, I pick up a new book.
Do you share this same bookish hangover as me?
