Famous last words

The ending of a good book is like the ending of an era, you’re leaving friends behind and that can be hard. The last words can give some closure or be super frustrating.

Inspired by ‘the unemployed philosophers guild‘, I’m starting a new series focussed on the last line of a book. So I’ll be sharing my favorite last line and explain a bit why I like them. Let’s start with my favorite book ever:

After all, tomorrow is another day.

(Margaret Mitchell – Gone with the wind)

Scarlett is a determined woman whose not letting anyone get in her way. When she wants something, she’ll make sure she gets it. With all her flaws, I love that the last the reader sees of Scarlett is this strong, determined part of her. She’s not to be pitied, but to be feared.
