I had a couple of people (Readerville and Nithin) leave me suggestions in response to last week’s post on Beginnings, but this one was already on its way! I mean, it was the obvious next question….

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?


Again my memory has left me, I cannot recall any exact last lines of books.  However, I do recall being satisfied by the last line of Maps which I just finished.  I also really liked Poisonwood Bible and White Teeh for their endings.  I think that a good ending adds to the strength of a book and bad final line can ruin a reading experience.
