Stories that End Where They Begin


I have a fondness for stories that end where they begin. It could be in a similar setting, with identical characters, or showing the same activity. When a protagonist has completed his journey, undergone whatever change he has; when the story’s mystery has been solved, or its conflicts resolved, I find it clever and satisfying to have the story return, in some way, to where it began, albeit with everything changed.

What recent book have you read that ends where it began?

I agree it is somehow satisfying to return to the beginning; sort of a full circle. Beryl
