Booking Through Thursday: Rewrite

It's THURSDAY which means it's time for BOOKING THROUGH THURSDAY:

Question: If you could rewrite the ending of any book, which book would it be? And how would you change it?

My answer: I LOVE THIS QUESTION!! I think this is one of the best BTT questions. The one book that jumps to mind is Wally Lamb I Know This Much is True. I thought this was a  fantastic book but was disappointed that Lamb wrapped everything up with a neat little bow at the end! I'm a little fuzzy on the details now, the last time I read it was September 2008 but here is what I would change (SPOILER ALERT-SORRY):
  • I wouldn't have Dominic find the translator for his grandfather's story again
  • Dominic's relationship with Ray later in life is too close for what they went through
  • Dominic wouldn't get back together with his wife
  • Dominic wouldn't find out who is father was and Thomas his brother and Ralph his half-brother wouldn't have known all along without saying anything
  • Dominic would have nothing to with the casino and no money from it
  • Dominic and Dessa wouldn't have ended up with Joy's daughter and everyone getting along so easily
  • I would end things around when Dominic's brother Thomas passed away  OR at when Dominic finds out who his father ends. PERIOD. Nothing else!!
Again, I love this question!! How about you? Are there any books that you wish you could change the ending? I would love to hear about it!! SERIOUSLY!!


  1. Oooh, this is a good question. I'm going to have to think about it for a while and get back to you. First of all I am going to have to remember the ending of any book! Ha. Ha.

  2. I read "I Know this mucb is true" twice and I couldn't figure out who their father was... You"ll have to enlighten me!
