    "I'm not particularly well versed with Harry Potter other than knowing the quality of the books and movies are top notch. So it is a bit tough for me to figure out if there would be an unexpected plot twist but I would not be surprised as well. Though I also suppose it wouldn't be unexpected if it listed there was one so I think this is a really good solution."

    "I really liked that there were so many twists in the story and the people I thought were good weren't as great as they first seemed. Also, the ending was a surprise to me and it ended up being one of the last people I thought it would be doing all the killing."

    " I loved The Light Between Oceans because it has an awesome unexpected plot twist. Tom and his wife become lighthouse keepers in Australia that only get deliveries once a season. They are all alone and become very emotional at the miscarriages she suffers. This book was on The New York Times bestseller list for about a year and became a Spielberg movie.
