Q. If you could change the ending of any book (or series), which book would you choose? And, why?

Although series like Harry Potter and The Hunger Games, didn't end with every single thing exactly as I'd want it, apart from removing the epilogues of both (just thought there were unnecessary), I wouldn't really change anything from the stories the authors wanted to tell. I think one of the few times where I felt great upset and deep injustice at the end of a book, was back in school reading Thomas Hardy's Tess of the D'Urbervilles. If I could change a book's ending, it would be that one. I'd want Angel to take the blame for Alec's murder, as his way of making up for how crappy he was to Tess and Tess herself would get away and go on to live a happy and fulfilled life.

  4. I've been meaning to read Tess of the D'ubervilles for a long long time! I picked up a copy from the used book store about a year ago and haven't gotten around to it...hopefully sometime soon!
