10 Αγαπημένες Closing Lines


Κλείνοντας ένα βιβλίο...

Σταματάς το ανοίγεις ξανά και ξανά για να διαβάσεις πάλι την τελευταία πρόταση και αν μπορέσεις να παρατείνεις ακόμη λίγο το αναγνωστικό ταξίδι. Και όπως μια καλή αρχή έλκει τους αναγνώστες, ένα καλό τέλος μπορεί να απογειώσει ακόμη και ένα μέτριο βιβλίο. Χωρίς να θέλω να κάνω spoiler ακολουθούν 10 τελευταίες προτάσεις από γνωστά βιβλία.

Το σπίτι των πνευμάτων
"It begins like this: Barrabás came to us by sea…"

Περηφάνια και Προκατάληψη

1984
“He loved Big Brother.”

Ο υπέροχος Γκάτσμπυ 
“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”

Οι άθλιοι
"This stone is entirely blank. The only thought in cutting it was of the essentials of the grave, and there was no other care than to make this stone long enough and narrow enough to cover a man. No name can be read there."
