Okay, I'm going to be honest here: the death of XXX left me in tears.

XXXXXXXXXX DIES!?!?!?!!?

Oh, come on! The book has been published for 6 years, the movie came out in 2009. Anybody interested in the fate of the characters already knew that. And everybody else doesn't care anyways... But fine, I put a spoiler thingy in my post.  :P I'm truly sorry if I ruined Harry Potter for you, Overlord.

I was joking ;P

Oh man, the end of FEED was a rough one.  I choked up.  In a manly fashion, of course.

Manly fashion... Riiiight. <rolls eyes>

I was also more torn up by Hedwig and one of the twins than Dumbledore. 

Also, the tree thing in Robin Hobb's Soldier's Son trilogy was pretty bad.  And pretty much every gruesome way Karen Miller's Hekat came up with to kill people.

In Night angel I didn't think it was the deaths that got me but rather how he is kept alive was very taken aback by that, really rather shocked.

that and Mr Dresden if only because it was the end of the book and i just want to know more dam it!

Yup, the twin thing was baaaad. Honestly, the last 100 pages of the book were bad. So many beloved characters died...  :-\ I'm a bit anxious to see the movie.

Yes, but you have to admit, it *was* gripping.  And I'm really hoping that they don't drop Mrs. Weasley's line when she kills Bellatrix!

Dumbledour, I think? Can't remember his name, but he was a 'perpetually melancholy and maudlin individual after contracting rabies from an enchanted squirrel' in those Harry Potter books, I believe.

Kind of difficult to answer this without spoiling some of my favourite books...

General West in Abercrombie's First Law certainly didn't deserve what happened to him.

Rake's death in Toll the Hounds was a hard one to take.

Another spoiler, but Hood's (apparent) death as well.
