This weeks questions is: 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?
Like last week, when I didn't participate, I find this a difficult question to answer. I know what one of my favorite endings to a book is, unfortunatly I do not have the book handy to give you the actual last sentence. But it was when I read Garth Stein's THE ART OF RACING IN THE RAIN. I don't know if it was the last line exactly, or if it was the final paragraph. I do know it was a terrific ending to a great story and it had me until the very last word. You can read my review of the book here.
There was a book that I read recently where the ending left me feeling empty and I distinctly remember the last line falling flat. (I'm not with my books so I'm at a disadvantage). That book was Katie Arnoldi's THE WENTWORTHS. I remember thinking That's it? I was expecting a little more. It's no secret I didn't care much for the book, but thought at least I'd feel a little better about it if it had a good ending. Unfortunatly for me, that was not to be the case.
