It's hard to say what the most emotional scene "ever" is because I've read a lot of books. The thing about emotions is that they are kinda fickle and fade. So it's much easier to remember the most emotional scene of the past year or tow, than the most emotional scene ever in my life. Of the past couple years, the most emotional reaction I can remember is to The Fault In Our Stars (review here). That ending. I can't really say more because of spoilers. But it's a book about 2 kids with cancer so you can imagine that it reaches some pretty dark places.Question: Tell us about the most emotional scene you've ever read in a book -- and how did you react?
I sobbed during that book.Messy, mascara running tears till the point where I could not read the page. I kept having to put the book down every few minutes and gain a little bit of self control before continuing the book. Often times when books are too emotional I have to set them aside, return to reality, then pick them back up with the emotion has passed.
