Day 27 – The most surprising plot twist or ending

I'll have to choose In Love With An Angel (original title: Innamorata di un angelo) by Federica Bosco - read my review here.

SPOILER ALERT.

The whole book is built upon a love story so beautiful and innocent, a forbidden love, an unlikely love. You'd think there's a HEA in there somewhere, right? Or at least a HFN (Happy For Now)? Wrong. At the end of the novel, out of the blue, the heroine's lover drowns and (obviously!) dies and the heroine ends up in a coma, after trying to kill herself. While I get the idea that in some cases authors either choose or have to kill a certain character, I have to wonder why kill a main character? Why write one of those dream-like love stories, just to tear it apart in just a few pages? Yes, I know, there will be a second and a third book in this series, but I'm still trying to reconcile with the fact that Pat died and Mia is in a coma.

Anyway, this is the most surprising plot twist that is still fresh in my head. There have been others, but this is the most recent.

What about you?

  1. I read the spoiler even though I haven't read this book because I probably never will. No harm no foul. Anyway... Ouch! That ending is definitely something else. As in WTF.

    1. EXACTLY! The story was great but why kill him? It was pointless! I heard that in the second book he comes back as a ghost and she wakes up and is able to see and talk and hear him. I'm waiting for the final book to come out, cause I sure am curious how it all ends. But seriously though, why kill him?? *sniff*
