BTT: Rewrite

If you could rewrite the ending of any book, which book would it be? And how would you change it?

A part of me says, ‘oh so many to choose from!’ but the romantic sentimentalist in me says, ‘but it wouldn’t be the same story anymore.’ Lets go with the former shall we? Or else I won’t have a fun answer. At least I don’t think I will.

The Castle by Kafka would be one because then it would not only have an ending, but it would be resolved. No one would go through all those pages of torture without closure! Yeah I really am not a fan of that book.

There’s plenty of other ones I’d change the ending of, but they’re more so because I didn’t like the ending and something else would suit me. That doesn’t mean that the ending was wrong though. The ending we read is part of the story and it wouldn’t be the story we are presented with without it (there I go).

I think that might be enough before I start giving reasons not to change them. What would you change? If you take part let me know!

  1. I thought about Breaking Dawn when I read this question this morning, but to be honest, there’s so much that I would change about the entire series that it hardly seems fair to pick on Breaking Dawn (even though it is, arguably, the absolute weakest in the series).

    I haven’t read the others on your list, though. I’ve toyed with the idea of reading some of the Vampire Academy novels. Are they any good?


    • Poor Breaking Dawn, coping so much flack.

      I think the VA books are a really good read. I’ve read up to Blood Promise which I think is book four or maybe five. I did get annoyed with the ending of that one, but they’re really well written and there’s more to it then a soppy love story (in this case it is not soppy). I think I read those books in the space of a few days.
      Plus I enjoyed them more so because there is an actual ending in sight rather than a lot of series that just keep going and going and going…


    • That’s the fun part of writing if you’re writing for someone, you can’t please everyone. Of course how boring it would be if an author could.

      Thanks for stopping by, I’m going over to check your answer right now.


    • It’s been awhile since I read The Da Vinci Code, but I vaguely remember the ending not being so great.
      Thanks for stopping by, I’m on my way to check out your answer now.
