Well, of course, guess what we found out about an hour later? Having figured out the rabbit was there, seeing it appear wasn't nearly as neat a trick for me as it should have been.
I have a writer friend, mindyklasky, who is in turn, good friends with Nancy Kress. Mindy went to see The Sixth Sense with Nancy, and sure enough, Nancy guessed the big secret less than halfway through the movie. I sure never saw that rabbit coming.
I also didn't see the one in Mindy's newest book When Good Wishes Go Bad. Mindy snuck a good sized rabbit into the story, and when it popped out of its hiding place, I was delighted. It's always great to see a fine craftsman at work. Everyone loves the magic of a good book.
Read any good magic tricks— er, surprise endings lately?
