Haunted Week - Written in the Tombstone

{This Girl Reads}

The epitaph: The inscription on a tombstone - you could say it's a person's last words. What is the greatest last line of any book you've ever read?

Here are five to get you started:

"He is coming, and I am here." ~ The Time Traveler's Wife, Audrey Niffenegger

"It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer. Charlotte was both." ~ Charlotte's Web by E.B. White

"As I left China farther and farther behind, I looked out of the window and saw a great universe beyond the plane's silver wing. I took one more glance over my past life, then turned to the future. I was eager to embrace the world." ~ Wild Swans by Jung Chang

...and one for Halloween: "He was soon borne away 
by the waves and lost in darkness and distance." ~ Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley
