We have all been there. Reading through the book, and then left disappointed with the ending. It kind of spoils it all.

If you could change the ending of a book, which one(s) would it be?

Sidney Sheldon's The Other Side of Midnight. I so desperately wanted Noelle to outsmart Demiris. Damn Sheldon for killing her.

I don't recall which all I wished had a different ending. But of the recent ones I read, I would want the ending pages in "Three and Half Murders" by Salil Desai a bit more plausible than the mere confession. It almost appeared to be a forced ending rather than natural.

Another one "The Surgeon" by Tess Gerritson. The last chapters were a bit dragging. It all went on well for the majority part of the book, but then it was okayish. I would prefer that the perpetrator of the crime be among the characters we have been introduced to and then we be given clues which confuses us as to who can be the perp? If a character talks to himself/herself in separate dedicated chapters, but has never been introduced to us in the main storyline, it all appears a bit contrived.

I would. Like to change the ending of 'The mist' by Stephen king. The ending in the movie is much more harrowing and is a rare example of where one would choose the movie version over the book

In a weird way, the ending of "Three and Half Murders" reminded me of CID episodes. One tight slap, and out with a full confession.

I wished that RK Narayan's Dark Room had ended a little differently. I felt bad that Savitri gave up a little too quickly trying to be independent. But then, the novel is mostly flawless and I guess the ending is more realistic given that time period and society.

The other book that I enjoyed reading but found the ending too abrupt was Ghachar Ghochar. I wish that the book had been a little longer and ended in a better way.

I agree about Ghachar Ghochar's ending. Among other things, we really don't get to know whether they killed Anita. I did like the pace of the book, though.
