Spoiler alert! Today we’re going to discuss the ending of the book. Is the ending of the book too cliched? I’m referring to the part where the reader learns that the Jacks were after Bod because it was prophesied that he would destroy the Jacks. Then in the course of pursuing Bod to avert the prophesy, the Jacks are destroyed. This plot device has been used many times before from Oedipus to Harry Potter.
Since the plot serves mainly as a framework for the views into Bod’s childhood and provides a backdrop of danger that is the reason Bod stays in the graveyard, is this plot-device sufficient?
