Day Twenty-two – Favorite ending/climax

Saturday, January 22, 2011

Okay, this one I have to give to Lord of the Rings. The destruction of Mount Doom through to the rescue by the Eagles is one of my favorite parts of any book ever. I'm even highly partial to the Scouring of the Shire.

Honorable Mention: The end of Moonraker (James Bond) I find notable for tension and dark humor, and the end of Memory (Vorkosigan Saga) for mental and moral triumph.

So, yes. This should've made my list, too. The Mount Doom sequence is brilliant and epic.

It was honestly the first thing I thought of when I saw the prompt. I must have re-read the climax a dozen times the first time I read the book.
