Q: What is the last book that made you cry?  Tell us about the scene...
A: I rarely -- rarely -- cry over books, or movies, though I've cried over more movies than I have books.  I don't say this to sound tough, it's just that visuals are more apt to affect me than words printed on paper.  Of the books I've cried over, they are:  The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by JK Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling, The Supernaturalist by Eoin Colfer, and Artemis Fowl: The Last Guardian by Eoin Colfer.  Roughly in that order.  

The last book was Artemis Fowl: The Last Guardian.  I don't want to describe the scene, because it's a massive spoiler, but it was at the climax of the book.
