    Favorite Closing

    As a companion piece to my "Favorite Opening" thread, I thought I'd start one for people to post their favorite last line(s). Naturally, we'll need to use the spoiler feature here!

    Mine comes from Stephen King's The Dark Tower VII: The Dark Tower:

    Spoiler!

    My favorite closing also comes from "The Warhound and the World's Pain" by Michael Moorcock:

    "Do you the Devil's work.

    And I suspect you shall see Heaven sooner than ever shall your Master."
    "I'm a vegan. "

    ---Kirby Bliss Blanton , The Green Inferno (2013)

    My favorite ending line is from A Tale of Two Cities: "It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known."

    But my favorite over-all end is the final scene in 100 Years of Solitude.

    Nik, I was thinking about the last sentence of "Autumn of the Patriarch", but it's 40 pages long; too long to post here. 100 Years is the best book I've ever read. I used the opening line for the other thread.

    You know, I was thinking of that as a brilliant opener as well! I haven't yet tackled Autumn of the Patriarch, but I'm aware of those last 40 pages. In a word, daunting.

    Not sure if I can swear it's my favorite, but the last paragraph of Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin always sticks in my head because it was a great surprise ending.

    One of many!
    " we each owe a death, there are no exceptions,but sometimes, oh god, the green mile seems so long..." gives me a little lump in the throat
    Agree with Pet Semetery! Certainly one of his more chilling last lines!
