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.

One of my favorite books I read last year. The books end with a chase on horses and the narrator states that they would have gotten away, if it wasn’t for a series of unfortunate events. That’s where the book ends and the epilogue starts, with the narrator talking about how he started on the second book.

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.
