Endings

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?


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!

And also–don’t forget, folks–sometimes WordPress’s spam filter seems to decide that a lot of perfectly valid answers are spam. I periodically check throughout the day for lost comments. But, PLEASE–if your comment doesn’t show, don’t post it four more times in the hopes that one of them will go through. I get very, very tired trying to sort out the duplicates.

    I liked this one better than the beginnings last week… don’t know why. In the Shadow of Mt. TBR

  7. You do realize that as a writer, I am loving these questions! So much wonderful inspiration.

  8. This is more difficult of a question than last week’s. But still fun.🙂

    Here is my answer. Happy BTT everyone.

  9. My response is posted on my blog also:

    One line that stands out is my mind is “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.” That line was stated by Rhett Butler in the book “Gone With The Wind”. However, it was not the last line of the book. The very last line is uttered by Scarlett O’Hara – “After all, tomorrow is another day.”

  10. Oops! Looks like my first link didn’t work. Let’s try this one: <a href=”http://readerville.wordpress.com/2008/07/31/btt-the-last-word/” The Last Word

  11. Again, this week, I didn’t have an answer for the week’s question… so I took one of the old BTT posts and answered that question, instead (again, I hope that’s all right):

  16. This was impossible! Mine’s here.

  17. I could’ve sworn I posted this, but it’s not showing up. Sheesh! If it shows up twice, just blame it on fried brain cells. I just came in from pruning trees, and it’s only 104 degrees out there!

    Now I’m going to cool off, guzzle my ice water, and have fun reading everyone else’s replies.

  18. Even though I have a wicked allergy headache, I still did it. Without further adieu and so I can go and try to get rid of this thing, which has been with me all day, here is mine.

  19. Here’s mine. http://aleapopculture.blogspot.com/2008/07/booking-through-thursday_31.html

  24. […] that it’s not Thursday but I wanted to still answer the question posed for last week’s Booking Through Thursday, as it’s sort of a continuation from the previous post.  So, without further waiting here it […]
