This piece resonates with me!

Even while reading murder mysteries or fantasy novels high on suspense, I can't help but look up the answers to the questions I am having. This serves two purposes:

1. I have some guesses and I can't wait to see if I am right.

2. It helps me notice all the subtleties the author used to hide the truth from me, and makes me appreciate their writing and world-building more.

Another major reason is there's a sense of validation in knowing I guessed the ending correctly, haha!

Thanks for this brilliant article. I enjoyed reading the reasoning and studies you provided.
