Jackie says, “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.
1. Do YOU like books with complicated plots and unexpected endings?
2. What book with a surprise ending is your favorite? Or your least favorite?
Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!
I love books with surprising or unexpected endings... but only if they make sense. If they're too out there then definitely no. Complicated endings? Again, yes, but if they make sense to me then I think the author is so smart when they can make it "complicated" or involved. But confusing, no.
One of my favorite books with sort of a twist/unexpected ending (first one that popped in my mind) is Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. It wasn't a "fun" twist, but it made you think (and cry!)
On another note, hopefully next week I will get back to posting Throwback Thursdays!
