After yesterday's review I wanted to write up a little explanation post/ this would make an interesting discussion post. I think I should explain how I feel about endings.
I'm not always a fan of happy endings thats true but I love endings that make the whole book. To me the ending is the most important part of the book.
To me, the ending can pretty much make or break a book. Now don't get me wrong, I don't just judge books on the endings. But if a book has an absolutely brilliant ending then I will love it even more than if it had a bad ending.
I think as a HUGE mystery fan, I love trying to guess the ending and then when the ending is completely unexpected it makes the book that much better.
When talking about ending types I think my favourite type of ending would be a twist ending. I love completely unexpected twist endings.
I do have a list of books that have some of the best endings ever (in my opinion):
The Rag and Bone Shop by Robert Cormier
Animal Farm by George Orwell
1984 by George Orwell
I think my favourite book ending would be Animal Farm, I'm not entirely sure why but I just think it's a fantastic ending. It's perfect and I will never ever forget it. If you've read Animal Farm let me know what you think of the ending.
I think thats the end of my little rant about Endings. I'd love to know some of your thoughts on them.
