Joshua Huver 6 December, 2007 ENG 1100 Wayne Johns Not So Happy Endings Stories have always been an integral part of human kind’s growing up and maturing. Stories about young men and women finding themselves and coming of age, fairy tales that can only really occur while one is dreaming, or tall tales, where the stories are exaggerated and made extraordinary. Whatever the case is, people have read to stories to aide in their own coming of age or their own pleasure. Whatever kind of person you might be doesn’t matter: there is a story out in the world that you will enjoy and get something out of. In Happy Endings , Margaret Atwood takes a seemingly normal story outline and ending but applies it to outrageous plots in order to shock the unsuspecting readers and create a loss for words. When Atwood begins with scenario A, she is very curt and non descriptive. It is a boring read, yet it’s the outline of a heart warming love story so the reader is left feeling happy. But then Atwood shakes things up. What if it was more complicated then that?
