Literary Endings 1
From "Call me Ishmael" in "Moby Dick" to "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times" in "A Tale of Two Cities" to "There was no possibility of taking a walk that day" in "Jane Eyre", the opening lines of many classic novels have become quite well-known to avid readers. The last lines, though, may not be quite so famous. How many of the following ending sentences can you recognise? All lines come from what are generally accepted as English literary classics. Please note that especially long sentences may have been truncated, and in some cases, if the last line is sufficiently short, the preceding sentence may also be included. Also, because these are the final lines of their respective books, there are possible spoilers.
