Do you read the last page of the mystery novel?
Give your reasons, if you dare.
I'm not sure that I've ever read a mystery novel. But I frequently do that very thing if I am confronted with a suspenseful
My reasons are that I just plain do not like
the suspense of worrying about how things will turn out. I find though, that if I already know what is going to happen, I can sit back and enjoy the story as it unfolds.
I also dislike unhappy endings, and dislike them even more when I am surprised by them. Knowing what will happen ahead of time allows me to abort before I get sucker punched by an unhappy ending.
