Q.If you could change the ending of any book (or series), which book would you choose? Why and to what?You know, honestly, there isn't a book I would change the ending too. Sure, there are a few things I'd tweak. Like in Breaking Dawn, I read a review that suggested Leigh and Jacob could have hooked up and I was like, "OMG! They are so right! Why didn't they hook up? That's sooooo much better than the imprinting." (Yes, really, that was my train of thought.) But what about Nessie? (Sorry, I am not attempting her name or googling it.) Yeah, what about her? The story line would still have worked. Mostly. Maybe tweak it so Sam's pack didn't want to kill Bella and Nessie and just have the Volturi want them dead. Is that how you spell Volturi? I'm not googling that either. I'm feeling a bit lazy tonight and am on a bit of a roll typing and can't be bothered to reach for the mouse. Although, hubby would assure me I could get to the search function without the mouse, but he's playing a video game so I won't bother him.
Anyways, where was I? Oh yes, book endings. Nope, nothing really comes to mind. I have enjoyed.... wait I just thought of one. It was an indie book I downloaded called Shinobi, Book One: Concealed in Shadows. It had gay ninjas. Tell me that doesn't perk your interest? That you wouldn't pick it up just to glance at it out of curiosity. Back on topic. I'd totally change that ending.
The first half of the book was amazing. There was good character development, conflict, an interesting bad guy and for some reason, the author threw it all out the window. Instead, the MC hooked up with the bad guy and to get the bad guy turned good out of the picture so MC could go back to the ninja dude he had been in the process of hooking up with, the author had the bad guy turned good die because he couldn't steal anyone's ki that was suitable. While he was the bad guy, he was going to steal the MC's ki but then they ended up having sex (oh yeah, this was an erotica. I did not know that when I downloaded it. I just thought, Gay ninjas... I have to see this. lol!) So the ending was just lots of pointless sex while waiting for bad guy turned good to die so the MC could go finish hooking up with the first guy. It felt like a total cop out. I forced myself to finish, but really I wouldn't have missed anything if I hadn't. Really, what was the author thinking? (Hmm, I wonder if anyone will think that when they read my book.)
