In Duma Key Stephen King writes, "
and that is just kick your behind, drawn into the emotion, can't hardly stand it ... good writing.
I've sniffled at a few SK books, the end of Insomnia when , the Dead Zone when , and several points in the Dark Tower - .

Shawshank's end was very moving and did shed a few tears. I do not think in any lituary work I was ever so upset when Mattie died in Bag of Bones. I do not think I could ever recapture that anger, and disappointment in a novel again. Even in some VERY trying times have I ever felt that way
its the green mile for me too
Insomnia and The Talisman had me weepy.
The Dark Tower VII: The Dark Tower. Tears streamed down my face when Eddie died and again when Jake died. I never thought he could bring me to tears the way he made me not be able to sleep 20 years ago when I read my first Stephen King book. AWESOME!!! as always. Please keep them coming and don't EVER stop writing!!!
To be honest there are several of SK books that have made me cry. I always get so attached to the charcters and it never fails that one of my favorites ends up getting killed ie...Wolf, Gage, Alice, Henry. I was so upset when Stu fell and broke his leg and I was sure that he wasn't going to make it and I didn't think I could take it after losing Nick like we did. Anyway......I think that is one of the best things about all of his books, the characters draw you in and you really start to care about them.
Having said all that I've cried like a sissy at a few others. Green Mile being one, . Recently I reread Needful Things and the scene where Pangborn breaks down completely in front of Polly really broke me as well, I know where he was coming from these days. The Stand gets to me in a few places, Harold's , the end of , some of Tom and Stu's scene's after , some others I'm forgetting and of course when the book ends... don't like to finish big epic books in general. I miss them for a while.
Then of course there's the Tower books. I always teared up in The Waste Lands where , I'm a sucker for 'animals in distress' ploys. Of course the really got me going, but that's pretty much universal amongst SK fans, so it would seem.
The one that really got me (and still does) was Wizard and Glass. I lost a fiancee who Susan kind of reminds me of, and there are multiple points throughout Roland and Susan's that get to me. But when Susan is ... that just rips my guts out every time. I probably should avoid it for my own health lol, but it's such a great book.
A few others have gotten me over the years but I can't remember specifics. You care about SK's characters. I think that is his main strength as a writer.
