I always find that the closing chapter of a book is the one that sticks in my mind long after I’ve put the book down. More than likely, this is because they are the last scenes we encounter in the book, but also because they can be the most poignant and well-written.
Over the next week, I’ll write a few posts on my favorite closing scenes, closing scenes I hated, and what makes a closing scene effective.
Like I did before with my feature on book memories, I’m putting the question out there for the public, and hopefully will again get some guest bloggers to contribute.
So, what’s your opinion on the closing scenes of books?
