I was very moved by the scene, and I may have teared a bit the first time, but in subsequent readings I remember that Lee and Hester died protecting Lyra. He wanted that more than anything else. It is a very sad death, but not an empty one.

i did cry when lee and hester died because it was very sad but the bit that made me cry was this bit-
-She pressed her proud little broken self to him and they died.
it was just such a good way to end the chapter :cry: :cry:

I nearly cried but I stopped myself though I still cried in my head when I read Lee and Hester dying... It's just horrible... :(
I believe in Dust. Magic. Different worlds. etc. etc. etc.
No one can stop me from believing anything that's impossible, just because I'm a Catholic.
No. I can believe in anything I like.

I did one of those things where your throat goes dry and, being the man I am, quickly stopped myself from shedding a careless tear. That scene really was heart-rending though. Anyone noticed how well Pullman does with affecting us with sad or depressing scenes?! The man's an artist.

I almost did cry when Lee and Hester died. I was just mostly shocked. Really shocked. And sad.
