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?
When I read the previous BTT question all I would think was ,’Nah…who remembers the first line?’ But apparently many people do. How ignorant of me.
Well as expected, I don’t remember the last lines too. But ‘A thousand splendid suns’ ends with a very beautiful line.
I will name him Aman.
Now I am not sure if that is the exact line, but it certainly means that.
The book is so heart breaking. You read and live what the women in the book, Mariam and Laila, go through and all you can think is, ‘Oh my God, how can people live like that? How can some people be so cruel?’. But the last line gives you hope and makes you believe that everything will be good in their lives again.
I know I had mentioned ‘The Kite Runner’ in the previous BTT post. But seriously, I love Khalid Hosseini. He writes with so much depth, understanding and pain that you can’t help but feel touched. I am eagerly waiting for his next book.
I think I loved My sisters keeper’s last line too. But I dont remember what it is. If anyone remembers, please enlighten me. In fact I have liked quite a few last lines, though they have had no impact on whether I like the book or not. But I like a book to end with a punch.
Oh…how can I forget? I just read The Book Thief. And it ends with ‘I am haunted by humans’ One of the best lines ever. Enough said.
