What are your views on surprise endings? I have finished reading ‘Something Might Happen’ and I must say I was surprised at the ending. I won’t spoil it for anyone who might indulge into the book themselves, but the ending rather took my breath away.
Personally, I am a big fan of a tale with a twist. Maybe that’s why I love Stephen King so much. You never know want journey he is going to take you on, and where the journey will finish. He must have strange dreams that man, if his everyday thoughts and stories are anything to go by. I wonder if he shares the same dream as me - animals attempting to eat him?! I’d like to think I have something in common with him! Or maybe I should stick with both of us suffer from poor eye sight.
The next book on my shelf is ‘Case Histories’ by Katie Atkinson. Anybody out there read this book? Incidentally it comes recommended by Mr King himself.
I didn’t have any spare time to read this book last night, as my dear friend Helen picked me up for our monthly meeting. Our monthly meeting in the cosy and warm atmospheric pub. Vintage cheddar and home made chutney baguettes, with chunky chips, and a glass of chilled white wine. And my friends good company to accompany the food and drink. A perfect way to spend a Tuesday night. Or any night of the week really.
Her adorable seven children, our favourite chocolate bars and our mutual friends wedding arrangements were discussed. Until we were both yawning from exhaustion and over-eating.
And the surprise ending of the night for us, was the peacock strutting around in the car park. I managed to follow him and take a snap shot for Flying Pink Elephants. Here he is below. I hope you like him.
