Robert C. Solomon On Love and the Passions

I'm interested in exploring Robert C. Solomon's work on our human passions, love, etc., which was one major focus of his work. Since he was such a prolific author, I'm a bit overwhelmed by the choices available. Does anyone have works they recommend in particular? Thanks.

Books that will make me weep?

Help me be sad. Recommend to me depressing, sad, mournful fiction. Books that made you sad and a tad tearful. I just want to access these emotions and be taken away in good writing and wonderful characters. Any genre is acceptable except YA (unless you can prove it is real exceptional YA I suppose). Less cliched angst situations as well.

Sweet Guitar Riff Bands. I know. Too general.

Fantasy Epics?

I'd like to try to read a fantasy or even a sci-fi epic. I really have no experience in either realm besides Lord of The Rings, one Dune book, the Ender Series, and Hitchhikers. All of which I enjoyed but especially LOTR. What would be a good series to start off? The epic is the key thing as I want some nice thick books that I won't read in a day. I'm leery of things with faeries in them. Or twee YA books.

why are there not any other podcasts with stories of midair bird collisions?

I'm looking for podcast suggestions. The Geologic Podcast is my current favorite podcast.

What other podcasts do this sort of variety-show silly voice sketch kind of material? I'm also open to audiobook suggestions (John Hodgman fulfills a similar thing, for example-- something about the topic jumping around-ness). [more inside]
