This is a meme hosted every Friday by Parajunkee, where book bloggers answer a question each week and check out how others answered it. It's a cool way for bloggers and viewers to connect and learn more about each other!
Question: Change the plot. If you could, what book would you change the ending or a plot thread? Go ahead and do it…change it.
Answer: This is actually a REALLY hard question. As mad as I get at books, I wouldn't love them as much if they always went they way I wanted them to. We all want the perfect, happy ending, but do you know how boring books would be if they were all perfect? If I had to change a book, though, I would change…
Persuasion by Jane Austen. I wouldn't change the story for me, but for the main characters. I wish that Anne had gone ahead and just married Wentworth when she was 19, instead of wasting EIGHT YEARS of her life by not marrying him because Lady Russell didn't think he was rich enough. They could have had eight more years together, but Anne had to go and throw those eight years away before realizing that she really did want to be with Wentworth. But, if they had gotten together when they were supposed to, we wouldn't even have this novel. So I guess it's perfect just the way it is.
