I saw a terrific list of the 12 worst book endings (below) and couldn’t resist sharing it with you. After you’ve read this article, let’s talk.
Literature’s Very Worst Endings
I found the list in a fabulous article as a sidebar on whether story makes us read (not to mention a second fascinating sidebar on the history of plot). Check it all out here.
Which listings made you respond, My thoughts exactly?
Which listings did you disagree with?
What books would you add?
What does this list teach you about bad endings?
I’ll share two of my opinions here but will save the others for responding to your comments:
- I disagree about Gone Girl making the list.
- I want to add Peace Like a River.
