Foiled Again...

We all have read stories wher we get to the end and are shocked by the outcome. Whether they go back to their true love, don't get the girl, or don't win the battle. What story's ending really surprised you? What story had an unexpected twist? Was it a good or bad ending?

Can't wait to hear,

PS- I'd have to say mine would be The 6th Sense. Freaky!


  1. Well Dear john was a book that i thought would have a diffrent outcome. i knoew in the end that the couple wouldnt be togher well because it was a 'dear john' letter type ogf thing. The biggest surprise it what happened at the ending with his father, and at the very end after the realtionship. I didnt expect that at all.

  2. I'd have to say a story with an unexpected ending would have to be Death note. For those people who haven't read it, it's about a guy who finds a notebook and anyones name that is written in the notebook, dies in 40 seconds. It's a very good story and its very analytical (a trait that i have) and it's not as morbid as it sounds. But in the end the main character dies a horrible death. It's rather sudden, and frankly, i didn't expect it to end the way it did. but none the less, it was still a very good story.

    And the 6th sense is pretty freaky. My mom always laughs in that movie.. i still don't know why...

  3. I am always disappointed by endings to movies and stories. But my favorite ending is definately from the prestige. i've only seen it once while it was still in theaters. But the ending completely suprised me and made the movie amazing. i really i liked it.

  4. The most surprising story twist I can think of is the end of the movie The Others with Nicole Kidman. I don't know if anyone else has seen it, but it was a very good movie with a totally unexpected ending. It's about this family that thinks their house is haunted, but then at the end it has a crazy twist. I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it, but I recommend it to anyone who likes movies that are actually scary and exciting rather than gory and stupid.

    well definetly star wars threw me for a loop when I found out darth baser was really Aniken Skywalker. I wasent really inso star was that much but it was definetly a suprise for me. I really like suprise in books / films becuse the storyline of the hero alwase winning and then getting away gets so old. it's nice to see something that mixes it up a bit and gives the reader something to consider.

  6. Well i know it is not the best movie but Harry Potter had a very unexpected twist at the end i always thought that dunbledore would live to the end of the series but i guess not. Also star trek had a very unexpected middle to it i did not expect the old spawk to become the future spawk in the new movie. That was a really good movie. I think the more unexpected twists there are in a movie the better the movie will be in the end.
