This week’s Booking Through Thursday question is:
What are your favourite final sentences from books? Is there a book that you liked specially because of its last sentence? Or a book, perhaps that you didn’t like but still remember simply because of the last line?
I thought last week’s question was kinda weird…this one is definitely so! Remember the last line from a book? Really?
So this is the question that I will post instead: What endings (not sentences) do you really remember? Which ones were good? Which ones were bad?
I don’t even know how well I can answer this question, but let’s see…
Gone With The Wind – Scarlett so didn’t deserve Rhett, but I would have liked to have seen them get together anyway. The ending is fairly open…but I’d rather it be concrete: Scarlett ends up with Rhett or she doesn’t. In my mind, she does.
Bel Canto – Seriously crazy ending.
Cider House Rules – only ’cause there was a huge chunk that was different and I preferred the movie’s version over the book version.
The Handmaid’s Tale – I’ll admit my memory is foggy now that it’s been over 10 years since I’ve read it, but DUDE, that was a good ending.
My Sister’s Keeper – Is there anyone who didn’t cry at this ending?
Pope Joan – There was no other way to end it.
But the best ending EVER…has to go to…
A Voice In The Wind. – Oh. My. God. BEST/WORST ENDING EVER. YOU MUST GO READ THIS BOOK. But be sure to read the sequel because the ending will make you freak out with your need to find out what happens.
What do you think? Has anyone read A Voice In The Wind? Can you confirm it’s the craziest ending ever??
