Follow Friday Question: “If you could change the ending of any book (or series), which book would you choose? Why and to what?”
A: Whoa!! This is seriously tough. I’m not sure if I can pinpoint an exact book, but book endings that frustrate me are:
- Endings that are vague- this is not only annoying but very dissatisfying
- Endings where everyone is unhappy or dead- i.e. any book by Toni Morrison, also Mockingjay 🙁
- Endings that feel rushed or tie things together a little too nicely
The only other thing I would add is that I wouldn’t change the ending to Harry Potter, but I would ask J.K. Rowling to just add on to it. Seriously if she wrote another 7 books PER the Potter/Weasley offspring, I would read them!
P.S. I just want to clarify and say that I didn’t hate the ending of Mockingjay- it just wasn’t what I expected. It was still a great series as a whole, but this book didn’t have a victorious-type ending that I think a lot of people thought it would.
What book ending would you change and why?
