Revisionist Literary History

What do you think about the WoTN's (World of Thursday Next's) ending to Jane Eyre?

Yesterday, I mentioned to user fightinlibrarian that "[in film versions of Jane Eyre,] they portray St. John with more life and interest while in the book he feels very Lurch-ish. At the same time, there's a part of me now that would also love an alternate-reality, Painted Veil-esque scenario with St. John and Jane in India." I'd completely forgotten that this is basically what happens to Jane in the WoTN, sans love story (but not sans malaria, http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/cry.png
sads).

Best line: "And what would you prefer? The forces of good and evil fighting to the death in the corridors of Thornfield Hall?"

I have to admit that I'm not as familiar with all of the works referenced in The Eyre Affair as I'd like to be - please point out under the appropriate chapter grouping what other "revisions" you come across! Related to that, are there any books - classics or otherwise - that you'd revise if you could? Besides letting Amy March die and not poor Beth, because that's obvious.

Re: Revisionist Literary History

Sometimes I wish I could revise or just remove the epilogue to the Harry Potter series. I wonder if J.K. Rowling wishes that too, since she keeps revising it in her head and telling us about it.  I can think of a lot of YA series (Hunger Games, Divergent) that have fans that wish they could change the ending too.
