Which book really made you start reaching for the tissues?

I rarely get emotional to the point of crying when reading books but "The Plague Dogs" by Richard Adams was a heart-wrenching read. It features an animal testing facility which is fictional (the book is a novel) but according to Adams' introduction to the book: "In reality, no single testing or experimental station would cover so wide a range of work as Animal Research. However, every 'experiment' described is one which has actually been carried out on animals somewhere."
This knowledge made it really hard for an animal lover like me to read some parts.
That said, it is a very good book that I can only recommend, just not a fluffy feel-good novel.

Any book with cruelty to animals or very young children: basically, cruelty to anyone who is unable to comprehend what is going on and why. To me their bewilderment and confusion are more distressing than their physical pain.
