Have you ever been unable to finish a book because a character reminded you of someone you lost?

I can't think of any time I have done this. I am interested to hear your experience.

Not a book, but cannot watch Longmire.

The main character reminds me too much of my late husband.

Couple other shows I won't watch because they were his favorites. Even shows that are humorous because I want to tell him about it.

What is it like? A missing the person, a longing. Can lead down the rabbit hole of "what ifs" that serve no purpose emotionally or practically.
I have enough reminders of him around to look at ponder over when I choose. No need to put it in my face. I'm in control of my life, not a book or netflix.

I don't always suceed in that control, but I know it's available.

I was unable to finish Dietmar Geyer’s masterpiece, The Ultimate Book Of Pens.

I lost someone once. But I looked in the closet and there they were.
