    The end of Twenty Thousand Streets Under the Sky made me cry more than any other book...I feel all tearful just thinking about it.

    The end of Hangover Square, for the having such bleak final lines.

    The bit where (highlight text to read) David leaves Giovanni in Giovanni's Room.

    The final meeting between Humbert and Lolita in Lolita.

    The end of Northern Lights, and also, as lots of other people have already said, Will and Lyra's separation.

    Sebastian's descent into alcoholism in Brideshead Revisited. Not a moment as such, but hopefully anyone's who read Brideshead will know what I mean.

    yeah, upsetting indeed. i find that there's a sort of sense that he's 'doomed' as soon as he appears in the book, with his eccentricity and such... i bet the new film absolutely murders it, ugh.

    It was quite sad when Alice died in Cell by Stephen King.
    Not crying material though, I actually found myself laughing due to how she died. Some random numpty chucked a brick at her - wtf.
    I was absolutely shocked at that, it was the suddenness that shocked me.

    Also, We need to talk about Kevin - the big twist near the end (won't give it away for those of you who haven't read it.) It's an AMAZING book, probably the best I've ever read, so I heartily recommend it.
    Completely agree with this, We Need to Talk About Kevin is superb... one part of the twist I'd kind of guessed, but the more brutal part I found shocking. I've never cried at a book before, being a thoroughly callous person, but that wasn't far off.

    The end of Private Peaceful, Fred Weasley's death in HP7 (why has no one mentioned this), the very ending of HP7 (not because it was good... it was sad that the series ended in such a weak way!), Lord of the Flies is sad at so many points though most particularly at the very end...

    Has anyone read Thomas by Robin Jarvis? That ended sadly.

    Oh, and The Secret River... there's so much regret and guilt at the end...

    Yeah I know. I was like wtf - What a way to go. And just found it funny because it was such a sudden and absurd death. But it was sad as the character's moved on and had to leave her behind. Good book, bit of a mad ending though.

    Yeah, the ending does start to get a bit silly I found. BUt as far as blood, gore and entertainment is concerned it's quite amusing :yy:
