Booking Through Story Ends

btt button

In general, do you prefer the beginnings of stories? Or the ends?

I like a good beginning with a great ending. To a certain extent, both matter to me. I think certain books have horrible beginnings but beautiful endings. And vice versa. Given a preference, I would go for a good ending. Because that is what stays within the mind long after finishing a book. The ending should be such which even though unexpected, ought to enhance the story, not take away from it.


Computer problems:

There has been no end to my PC woes. I desperately need a new one and looking for the best offer. Until then my appearances would be sporadic. What else can you expect, when I am using my nephew's PC! Until I get a new computer, please bear with me. I will make my rounds to your blog as soon as I can. The good thiong about not having a PC is that I am reading like crazy!

Sorry about yur puter. For me reading a book is like having sex. I require both ends and everything in the middle .Here's mine.

Me too! I like both to be fantastic!

Sorry about your continued computer problems and hope you find a great deal on a new one.

Endings. If the beginning doesn't engage me, I move on to the next book. But if all has gone well and the ending sucks, I'll be very upset that I have put in the effort. I'll feel shortchanged.

What Matt said, I agree with.

I hope your computer issues get better soon! It is good that you have more reading time though! :)

I would have to say that they are both equally important. What annoys me though is the people that read the first and last chapters before deciding to read the book or not. Total pet peeve of mine, but hey, I can't dictate everyone's reading now, can I? I love the thrill of the ending and just can't bear to read it first!
