Fact: The world’s first novel ends mid-sentence

The Tale of Genji, written by Murasaki Shikibu in the 11th century, is considered the world’s first novel. After reading 54 intricately crafted chapters, the reader is stopped abruptly mid-sentence. One translator believes the work is complete as is, but another says we’re missing a few more pages of the story.

Thanks Ardy, LD, Lorna and bbandit .. It could be either one .. :-)))


So, is the story 'in' the missing pages or 'about' the missing ages?


That would be so annoying for the reader! Fun fact Pat, thanks.


I agree with Ardy...Thanks Pat.


Remind me not to start this one. lol Thanks, Pat. Hugs.
