Don't you just hate that?I just read a book where I didn't understand the ending AT ALL.(If anyone has read the book The Story Of Edgar Sawtelle please message me and tell me what the fuck happened) :'DSo here is the place to hint people on what books have sucky endings, no spoilers though. Or tell me what kind of endings you prefer or dislike in general.

Agreed! I would have changed the whole ending.

Breaking Dawn. that whole book was a shit ending
'The Bell Jar' just makes me mad.To those who think it's the female equivalent to 'Catcher in the Rye'....WHAT. THE. F***ING. HELL.

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. For me, it ended quite awkwardly.Oh, Her Fearful Symmetry was another one. I don't think she used the right words to end it.
Not exactly a book, more a short story but 'The Withered Arm' by Thomas Hardy was dreadful. One of those that come across as though he was really bored of writing and had no ideas so he just thought "Fuck it!". Another ending that I think is dreadful is "Romeo and Juliet" - Shakespeare. I know there'll be a lot of people who disagree with me but I truly believe good ol' Will was having an off day when he wrote the final act. Love x
Every Jodi Picoult book. ARGHH.

Villette by Charlotte Bronte. I felt really dismayed when I finished it. Almost the whole book was spent building up to something, but in the end it was all just torn down. But it did make the rest of the book a ton more believable. It was almost sort of necessary.

the ending of 'catcher in the rye' was such a disappointment to me, i expected it to be a lot better than it was

FORT WORTH, TEXAS,
That entire book was a disappointment given all the hype people praise it with.

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. It's like she just completely gave up on the plot... characters... world. "I'M SICK OF THIS BOOK, let's just tie up these loose ends and be done with it." So awful.
Dear John, arrgh. The ending really annoyed me.
Books of Japanese writers.They always let the main character's beloved ones die.It's often very frustrating. (':
Harry Potter. What a huge shame.
I did enjoy the book but I do agree that it gets far too much praise.

yup, ending to harry potter was terrible!
January 14, 2012
I was going to say that.I am a die-hard Harry Potter fan but from the age of 11, I wanted him to sacrifice himself and die for the greater good, all Jesus Christ-stylee. I was so passionate about how much I wanted him to die.And then what do I get? "All was well"? Fuck off!
GREATER GOODYeah, I read and loved Potter since I was, let's see, 5 (bloody hell), and I don't remember when I decided I wanted Potter dead for the greater good (I don't think that far ahead like you xD) but I agree. Nothing's self-sacrificingly stylish as self-sacrificing Jesus-Christ-style!
Self-sacrifyingly stylish! I love the alliteration!
Bit of a mouthful, isn't it? xD
Haha did you say it aloud too?
everything written by kafka :D

A PLACE WHERE I LONG TO FORGET,
Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
How did it end in the book??
March 24, 2012
The Tangle Wood Secret (scarred me when I was a child) wretched ending.

Books with terrible endings are the worst thing ever. A few months ago I was reading, "The Phantom of Manhattan" by Frederick Forsooth (I think) and the ending was the worst! It wasn't even how it ended that made me mad, it was the way it was written. There was no climax; it was so monotone and unemotional I wanted to scream. Thankfully, I didn't spend too much money on the book...

what happens in the book?
May 7, 2012
Handmaids Tale by Margaret Atwood, amazing futuristic Novel, but i do not understand what actually happens in the end
Im not really a bookworm or such, but I've finished reading mockingjay (third installment of the hunger games trilogy) I didnt like the epilogue. I didnt felt that satisfying feeling when I finished the book :| I really dont like the epilogue its like it was not suzanne writing, or it was probably rushed or she ran out of ideas to wrap up the ending. anyway I agree with Jen.

I hate it too! This is the only time I like the movie better than the book. I hate the ending but like the whole concept of the book
May 10, 2012
Witch Child, A Series of Unfortunate Events and The Hunger Games.

My Sisters Keeper had a fantastic ending, but when they made a film out of it they completely ruined it with one vital change.
i hated an aspect of the ending of birdsong. it wasn't the ending that pissed me off, it was the character that ended it. the least deserving character to have done so IMO
July 3, 2012
THE BLACK FOREST,
Mockingjay. That book was a peice of shit.
Catcher in the Rye
July 9, 2012
hunger games! :( just disappointing (well the last ending for mockingjay)

The novel (fairy tale) The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge just disappointed me, when I finished it I was like: Why? Why would someone make up such an end, kids are reading it! Well to be honest, I had some issues with it during the storytelling too, some things were just too unpropable, they would just not work (and I am not speaking of the unicorn now). The movie that gained inspiration from the novel was way better (The Secret of Moonacre).

there are so many books with terrible endings but i took issue with the ending of 'birdsong' by sebastian faulks. not because the ending was that bad, it was the best way to end it but it was the wrong person. why was the married lover, father of elisabeth's child the one to finish it? the ending thoughts are great but it should have been elisabeth and their son, not him. he was the least deserving person, he was a minor character that rarely featured, he deserted his wife and daughters, panicked when he had to help her give birth and he gets the affirmative life message at the end. absolutely terrible
