Question (197)      Books (29)      Disappointment (2)     
Have you ever read a book and wished the author had finished it differently? Perhaps they'd finished with an inconclusive ending? Or was it that the heroine of the piece chose the wrong man in your humble opinion. Or maybe you just felt robbed of a proper outcome. Whatever the reason, which books have left you disappointed by its final chapter?

When has the end signalled a major anti climax

I might be in the minority here but I didn't like the ending to the final book in the Hunger Games Trilogy. Just found it a bit wishy washy and it left me wanting a bit more than what I got.
I didn't like the last book either. I'm not sure what I would prefer to have happened instead though. I think expectations were set so high after the previous two that it was a bit hard to live up to it all.
When I first read 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows', I found the ending disappointing. I was all set for Harry to die, and when he didn't my expectations were let down. I also thought the future scene did not cover enough of the characters. Now, however, I have grown to like it.
The final chapter of Picnic at Hanging Rock (the one the editor correctly told her to leave out, that was published in the eighties) is ridiculous. Much better story unfinished.
Don't read this if you haven't read The Elegance Of The Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery. I struggled through the various narrators and was so annoyed with the ending I actually threw the book to the floor. Thank goodness it wasn't my iPad. My actions were out of character, surprising my family, and I told them that "she went and died in the end" which they didn't understand but I certainly felt cheated by such a quick-exit ending!
