AtoZChallenge: H is for Horrible Endings (#3/3 of WW)

This is the 3rd of the three-part series on Wednesdays with my writing partner. Do share your thoughts on the series.

Oh, what a horrible and unsuspecting ending to the story! Who would have thought that a woman so meek and pushed around by her husband would finally get a chance to play her card. And such a vile card at that! That’s all I’m going to say for now 🙂

If this story has knotted up your insides and left you craving to to find out what really happened, then look up The Way Up To Heaven by Roald Dahl in his Collection of Short Stories. Do read and tell me what you think.

This story was all D and I had time for, this Wednesday. We spent about three hours reading and animatedly discussing the story and our impressions after. It was a great Wednesday, like most Wednesdays are. We’re very excited to see what next Wednesday will bring. Until then, it’s adieu to the Wednesday series. Thanks for being with me until the end. Hope you enjoyed the ride 🙂

Dahl is a master of deception and if you’ve read another writer like him, I’d be excited to hear about it.

  1. I am not sure I will ever read Dahl again, but he is a masterful storyteller for sure. I especially detest when the the character that has been so meek all along changes overnight at the end. I think standing up for yourself from the beginning prevents this sort of thing from happening.

    • Hi Sweetbearies Blogs! Thanks for your interesting perspective on characters. There are characters that fight and others that break after a while. Mrs. Foster was the second kind, i suppose. Thanks for stopping by.
