World Book Day – the Day After
....Carrying on the theme of World Book Day. Did you all take part in the survey, "what is your favourite book ending"?
I did (clue: "Reader, I married him…….") but the survey was quite restricted – one did not have free choice of ANY book.
So I started thinking about the kind of book endings that I like best, and decided that I like those that end with a smile. Georgette Heyer was very good at this: the last word was very often given to one of her secondary characters, - remember Felix in Frederica and his "Please, Cousin Alverstoke'…..?
I love the way this shows her grasp of real life, that even though the hero has won his heroine it won't be the end of the story. Why not let us know your own favourites?
