” The most surprising plot twist or ending.”
Honestly? I think I might punch myself in the face for saying this, but…
My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult.
If you haven’t read this/are planning to read this and do not want spoilers, go away.
That ending was completely like “WHAT?!” But I like it, because it makes sense. Well, except for the car accident. I think Picoult was PMSing when she wrote that part or something. That was just BITCHY.
Some endings that are “shocking” can be totally random and just leave you confused. I think this book’s ending actually made a lot of sense, despite the shock factor. This happens with a lot horror/suspense novels and movies. The ending is so random that of COURSE you weren’t seeing it coming! If you’ve ever seen the 80s movie Murder by Death (excellent movie, very funny) it makes fun of just that: mystery writer’s plots and endings. One of the writer’s “introduces a new character at the very end,” while others create several disguises that it becomes confusing. It’s a really great parody of mystery writers. Definitely check it out.
Any thoughts on the topic?
