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.
I wish you all a long and happy life
(Alice Sebold – The lovely bones)
This line is really one to give closure. It’s a clear message, Susie is saying goodbye to the readers and earth. Which is good for her, but sad. Even though I knew what happened to her was irreversible, I still wanted her to come back so badly.
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.
What’s your favorite line?
