First Phone Call From Heaven by Mitch Albom
It wasn’t just the ending on this that needed to be re-written. Large parts of it did, which all depending on the ending to have impact. There was no impact. And I saw the ending coming from the beginning of the book.
Blindness by José Saramago
After an extremely interesting premise, and so many hard-fought battles (while dealing with major adversity) the ending was just… unfulfilling. Was there a point to anything I just read? No? Okay. Thanks.
The Hunger Games/Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
I wanted more. For everyone. I know not everyone can have a happy ending, but how about 1 or 2 people?
1984 by George Orwell
If I was Bruce Banner, the end of this book would turn me into the Hulk. And it’s made worse by the fact that it’s a great book.
