Hi Roger! I still do read the end of many stories first, especially mysteries and romances, because I cannot stand the tension of wondering how it is going to turn out. The first thing I asked my friends who saw Star Wars The Force Awakens before I did was, "Are Han and Leia still together?" I couldn't focus on enjoying the movie until I had that question answered. I suspect I am unusual in that I love spoilers. I love knowing what is going to happen. Then I can pay attention to the spinning out of the story.
