The Best Plot Twist
I know, I know, the numbering is weird. Turns out I made a drastic mis count, who knew? Apparently 50 doesn’t come right after 40!
Anyway, today we’re talking about that book that you wanted to throw across the room because WHAT HOW COULD IT POSSIBLY END LIKE THAT?!? I didn’t see that coming AT ALL!
One of my all time favourite books has that sort of plot twist, and I’m sure I’ve mentioned it a hundred times on here; it’s Gone Girl. Gone Girl is exceptional, and part of that is because I really had no idea what was going to happen until it happened. That’s the sign of a really amazing book in my opinion!
The second one is one we read for school this year, Atonement. Our teacher warned us that something surprising was going to happen, but I definitely didn’t guess what it actually was! Yes, we yelled at our teacher, as if it was her fault that the ending dramatically changed everything we just read.
And that’s what I think makes for a really good plot twist – it does change everything you just read. Finding out who the killer is might surprise you, but there was always going to be a killer. The book never lied to you about that!
What are the best plot twists you’ve read? And what do you think made them so great?
