This ending can surely be expected after understanding the revenge theme from the original novel. The movie has successfully remained true to the novel. However, in the film, Edward decides to just send a book to his ex instead of killing the person who killed his wife. This could just be Edward’s simple plan of taking revenge, which seems petty considering Susan's current situation and how awful she feels about her life. Getting a book and being stood up is a far less dramatic ending that the original ending from the novel. While some fans thought that the ending could have been more dramatic, this was considered to be one of a kind.
