News at Eleven: I didn't cry though; not until I got

to the last page. I was thinking I must have an especially tough hide, when I turned to that final image, and, damn it, found myself snatching my breath, turning away from the dinner table, and--through a film of tears--looking round the room for something to distract my attention and stop me from tipping all the way over into helpless blubbing.

It is the most devastating conclusion. Harder than Sophie's Choice, Of Mice And Men, Bambi or Watership Down.
