An unexpected dreadfully sad ending. Like The Mist.0
(1) Characters you can connect with - If you hook reader and emotionally involve them with at least one of the characters
(2) Good story
Those first two are necessary and bonus would
(3) Solid story development
(4) Satisfactory ending - How many books have you read great build up but terrible ending
A good plot
You can't go wrong with lies
Smooth beggining conflict conflict conflict demi solution Full on resolution and unexpected final conclusion i absolutley hate when a quater way through a movie i already know how its gonna end.
Build up and characters.
