All the Pretty Horses Ending
Often people complain about an ending to a story being too sad or too happy, neglecting to acknowledge the conclusion of the moral development of the main characters. While Cormac McCarthy's novel All the Pretty Horses did have a sad plot, there was a clear and deep spiritual development in the main character, John Grady Cole. The book follows John through many trials and tribulations and through it all he learns and develops into a wiser man. At the end of the novel, John is left in distress morally and needs the reassurance of a town Judge to conclude his spiritual journey in the story.
