Dear Author, Why You Do This? 9 Deaths in Books that Were Just Pure Torture

Every reader knows this to be true: we relate and love fictional characters more than real people. And just when we are getting attached to them, writers choose to just out-and-out kill beloved characters. What can we do except sit in a corner and cry over their deaths? Not kidding, we have all done that, especially for the deaths of these characters:

  1. Sirius Black, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Just why J. K. Rowling, WHYYYYYYY? You just had to go ahead and kill the guy we all loved!

  1. Piggy, Lord of the Flies

If we had to pick the most horrible death from books, it has to be Piggy’s. Just. Not. Done.

  1. Marley, Marley and Me

Okay, we know this is a true story, but no one should be allowed to write about dogs dying. Extremely sensitive topic.
