I sobbed when I read the finally book in the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett. Under normal circumstances the scene that had me openly weeping in a crowded bus would not have been that sad, but the fact that the author himself was dying and knowing that I was reading his final book ever just drove me to tears. Whether intended or not, it felt like the way in which this character faced death (no spoilers about who or how) echod the way in which Terry Pratchett dealt with his own battle with Alzheimer's disease. I have all 41 of his books in my collection and practically grew up with his stories, so the realization that The Shepherd's Crown would be the last one ever was just the saddest thing ever for me.
