Favourite Finishing Lines Friday (24/06/2016)


A book’s final sentence is like a ribbon that ties together the plot of the book, which is handed to us readers, and is also the final sentence that contributes to our impression about the book – whether we like the book, or not.

There are many types of last lines – Lines that conclude something; Open endings that leave things to our imagination; Twists that leave us staring at the book with our mouths ajar; And then there are the most feared cliffhangers which drive us to kill for the next book.

An effective well-framed finishing line embeds the story in our minds and it lasts for a long time, even after the book is read. In this weekly meme, I’m going to pick a book whose finishing line I absolutely loved.




Come on, now. There is nothing more to be said about this book. I love it. It’s perfect.

Finishing Line: 


And just for the kick of it, here’s some Leonardo GIFs from the movie:



and more



Haha, I really need to stop with that. Sorry, guys. I’m obsessed with this guy.

Oh, and this book reminds me of the song “Young And Beautiful” by Lana Del Rey. And it’s stuck in my head now.



What is your favourite finishing line? Do you like this week’s finishing line?

  1. Love this week’s finishing line! I’ve had the idea for ages of decorating a room with my fave opening lines, like The Day of Triffids (When a day that you happen too know is a Wednesday starts off by sounding like a Sunday, there is something seriously wrong somewhere.), or Gone With the Wind (Scarlet O’Hara was not beautiful but men seldom noticed it when caught by her charms as the Tarleton twins were.) but I think there will have to be a finishing lines room too now! Anyway, I’m quite into Diana Gabaldon Outlander books and love the last line from book 5, The Fiery Cross: “‘When the day shall come, that we do part,’ he said softly, and turned to look at me, ‘if my last words are not ‘I love you’ – ye’ll ken it was because I didna have the time.'” Gets me every time!
