The question this week is from Jackie:
I love books with complicated plots and unexpected endings. What is your favourite book with a fantastic twist at the end?
So, today’s question is in two parts.
- Do YOU like books with complicated plots and unexpected endings
- What book with a surprise ending is your favorite? Or your least favorite?
This is easy – I do like complicated plots and unexpected endings. And the book with a surprise ending that immediately came into my mind when I read this question is The Last Time They Met by Anita Shreve. It’s a love story, which had me enthralled. The ending took me completely by surprise. I just hadn’t seen it coming. Sometimes I’m tempted to look at the last few pages when I’m part way into a book and I’m so glad I didn’t with this one.
As for my least favourite, that’s not so easy. There have been quite a few that I think are disappointing and a let down, but I tend to forget about them.
