Spy High
A.J. Butcher
I am pretty happy with the end of my book. It was a pretty normal ending. The team kills the bad guy and Jake and Ben work together to save the world. But normal is getting boring. If I could change the ending of my book, i would make allow the bad guy to win and people start dying. That would be a unnormal ending and a surprise to the reader. I get very bored with normal endings, so if I could make it the ending sad and then set up a sequel, its a win win. I think more authors should change the ending of their books because they are starting to get unoriginal.


  1. I totally agree aly. I think that the endings of books these days are too predictable. When authors do something unexpected and set up another book it makes me want to read it and find out what happens.


  2. I agree as well. I'm reading the Alex Rider series and the endings are getting really predictable. In fact, most of the book is becoming very predictable. This one was a little better, the main character got shot and became unconscious at the very end. I know there's another book though, so I'm guessing he will survive. Do you know any books that DO have an unexpected ending?
