Which non-series book would you most like to read the sequel to?
Do you have any wishes for what might happen in it?
This is one of those questions that I think maybe I found it easier to answer when I was young. I was probably more prone back then to rewrite endings in my head if I did not like the one given. Now I usually don’t speculate that much unless perhaps when I know there is to be a sequel. But the only ‘serious’ (not all that serious) speculations of that kind that I’ve been involved in was probably while waiting for the end to the Harry Potter story.
Back in my early teens I know I wished for a sequel/ different ending to the Diary of Anne Frank, but at the same time well aware that since Anne really died in concentration camp, this was not going to happen.
That’s probably also the kind of story that may still make me wish for different endings or impossible sequels. Come to think of it, that’s what I did between the last Harry Potter books as well: Trying to find ways to bring back characters who had been killed! (A wish, by the way, that the author also dealt with in those books, but in a different way.)
As far as I can recall, I don’t think I ever yet tried to read any of those fake sequels that sometimes pop up, like one author writing a sequel to someone else’s original story.
