Bleak Books

From Scott Pack's blog came this link to the top 10 books in which things end badly. I've only read half these and started my own list which I'll add to when I think of some more. Mine are not necessarily top books, though some are.

1984, George Orwell
A Handful of Dust, Evelyn Waugh
Requiem for a Wren, Nevil Shute
Konigsmark, A E W Mason
Jude the Obscure, Thomas Hardy
The Mill on the Floss, George Eliot
