Booking Through Thursday: Last Sentences


What are your favourite final sentences from books? Is there a book that you liked specially because of its last sentence? Or a book, perhaps that you didn’t like but still remember simply because of the last line?

Here I am attempting to get back in the swing of BTT. I’ve discovered that when I participate, I read, and when I don’t, then I don’t. Said but true. Which is why I am participating this week even though I don’t have a real strong answer to this question.

My favorite final sentences are the last two verses in Revelation, because they point directly to a my future with the King. They say:

20 He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus! 21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

I don’t remember any other last lines. There have been books I didn’t like because of how they ended, but it was more the last few paragraphs, and I can’t remember any specific ones.

I know, I suck today, but I tried.

  1. The Bible always is a good choice to quote, but I’ll bet you looked!
    I don’t have endings (or any other lines) memorized, but I enjoy a sense of satisfaction when the book is complete at its ending.

    PS I absolutely LOVE your transparent floral blog!

  2. Not only did I look, but I copied and pasted from, LOL!

    I do feel satisfied after I finish a good book. Almost like a good meal, isn’t it?
