message 1: by Geraldine (new)

Geraldine 100 Years of Solitude is on this list twice. Can the votes be combined?



message 2: by Gabriel (new)

Gabriel You're kidding, right? This list is composed of books some of which have a few of the worst endings I've seen conceived!

I agree! I am surprised that some think these endings are good! Some are way too sad. (but that is life)




message 4: by Erik (new)

Erik Can someone explain how exactly the ending of Twilight is better than the ending of A Tale of Two Cities? Is it because at the end of Twilight, you're SO happy it's over?


message 5: by Morgan (new)

Morgan F I love how a majority of these books are also on the Worst Endings list. And Breaking Dawn having the best ending ever? More like the most boring ending ever.


message 6: by Emily (new)

Emily haha i agree! I read that book and I can't even think of how it ended, but then all the twelve year olds just go around and vote for the twilight series on every single list...

oh and the ending to ender's game sucked!


message 7: by Kayleigh (new)

Kayleigh I really think animal farm should be on the list because the ending's one of the things I remember about it. Please go and vote for the first book when you search for it if you agree with me.


message 8: by MM (new)

MM As much as I love HP, it should not be on this list. Or, if it is, not #1.

message 10: by Kylee (new)

Kylee isn't it funny that most of the books on this list are books i have never heard of?


message 11: by Selena (new)

Selena Breaking Dawn? Best Ending? Yeah right. The ending stunk. Watching paint dry is better than that ending.


message 12: by Hope (new)

Hope Are you crazy HP sould always be #1!

i agree i love harry potter and all but...

not as good as an ending as the hunger games series and the outsider...

Selena: Lol, watching the tourist is better than that ending (the tourist was the worst movie i have ever seen, actually, maybe it ties with the notebook.)


message 14: by Lucille (new)

Lucille I'm always a fan of bittersweet or unpredictable endings. Keturah and Lord Death has one of my most favourite endings because it isn't the perfect thing that should happen at the end of a fariy tale type story. Unlike the ending of Breaking Dawn, which was cheap and boring. I also really liked the end of the Lord of the Rings series, with the fight for the Shire. I was so mad when that wasn't put into the movie. When I watched the extended edition I hoped it would be there, but sadly, the hobbits do not get to fight the evil wizard on the big screen.


message 15: by Jaye (new)

Jaye God, I abhor Goodreads' listopia... why I continue to come here for book recommendations is beyond me. I think it's time to try Amazon's shelf- thingy.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Listopias are used for many purposes, not just recommendations.


message 17: by Daniel (new)

Daniel Gómez The most beautiful ending I have read I think was either Catch 22 or One flew over the cuckoos nest, 1984 was a great ending too, it really had me going for weeks and the ending for Animal Farm was just hilarious, in a good way.

Amalie I see Holy Bible in the strangest lists! :)
