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?
I’m not really sure what kind of endings I prefer. I think it depends on what genre of books I’m reading. When it comes to Romance books I prefer happy and neatly tied up endings, but then again I did love Love Story and Gone with the Wind.
I would like to think I like unexpected endings, take for e.g. My Sisters Keeper. That was totally not what I was expecting but I loved it. I’m sure there are books where I haven’t liked the turn the plot has taken but can’t seem to recall anything at the moment.
I don’t usually like complicated plots. I don’t have a lot of patience with them. I used to get only half an hour to read everyday. A complicated plot means trying to recall everything I’ve read a day before and too many breaks which is definitely not appealing. But then again I did love The Da Vinci Code which was complicated to me as I’m not a Christian. I had to struggle with basic concepts too.
See? I told you. I’m a very confused person or maybe I just don’t have a preference unless the ending and the plot is smooth flowing and not an attempt to be deliberately shocking.
But there is one kind of ending I absolutely DO NOT like. The ones that are incomplete.
What about you?
