BOOK: The Sequel is one of those books you wish you thought to write yourself: completely different and yet completely familiar. Mocking everything from current events to the original works themselves, this book was very funny look at the possible places our old favorites could take us. Some of the best first lines were from such fictitious books as Indifference & Infidelity (sequel to Pride & Prejudice), Lord of the Flies II: Zombie, and Bridget Jones 3: Why Did I Want to Get Married So Badly? BOOK: The Sequel is the perfect coffee table book for those who enjoy poking a little fun at their literature. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0786747811, Paperback)

After the last page is turned and the cover closed on a great book, is it really over? Ever wonder what happens to Harry Potter after, say, twenty years of marriage and a steady government gig? Or what Karl Marx would say about today's financial crisis? What did Scarlett O'Hara really think about tomorrow?

What comes after "ever after?"

BOOK: The Sequel dares to answer these burning questions with imagined first sentences from would-be follow-ups to classics from The Bible to Lord of the Rings, and from Green Eggs to Hamlet.

A delicious and unexpected return engagement from favorite characters like Jane Eyre, Ebenezer Scrooge, Jay Gatsby, Holden Caulfield, Wilbur the Pig, and Captain Ahab, BOOK: The Sequel is a perfect gift for book lovers everywhere, or anyone to whom "The End" is simply the starting point for their imagination.
