Do you prefer to read a mystery that you are able to piece together all the clues and solve by the end of the story? Or would you rather be totally shocked by the outcome? (As long as the resolution is at least feasible, of course.)
Personally, I admit that I get great satisfaction out of being able to solve a mystery--probably because I am rarely able to do so, it seems. However, if an author is able to take me completely by surprise and also back it up with evidence in the story, I think I prefer the mysteries with the unexpected twist at the end. There's just something about that eye-opening, jaw-dropping reaction that makes those books worth the read.
So, what do you think? Please leave a comment below!!
