something to make you think. See the

|"Not liking surprises is also the
reason that I always read the ends of books first. Ray says this is a
terrible habit, and if authors knew I did this, they would track me
down to the ends of the earth and take away my library card. But I like
to know where things are going. I like to know who's going to live and
who's going to die, and in mysteries, I like to know who the criminal
is right from the beginning. I've always wished real life could be like
that, that you could peek ahead every once in a while, just to see
what's going to happen."
