Should I give away the solution to a mystery novel I'm reviewing --- with appropriate warning?


Some of my hubs are reviews of mystery novels. I've been wondering if I should put a "spoiler" ---- labeled appropriately, of course --- giving away the solution to the mystery? So, those who don't want to know, can just stop reading the review before they find out the solution. I haven't done that yet. Just wondering if it's a good idea or not?

    Thanks, Gina145. You're like me. I can't keep myself from looking, either. The only way really is --- like if it's on another page, or something? But, that's not feasible for Hubpages. Plus it wouldn't keep me from looking, anyway :-))

    Thanks, Lupita. I think so, too. That's the least I could do. If I do decide to give away the solution. I'm seeing that most Hubbers think it's not worth it, though. I'm starting to lean in that direction.

    Thanks for your comment.

    You guys have convinced me it's not a good idea.

    I would like to select EACH answer as the best, but I don't think they will let me do that. These answers are all so great! So --- I guess I have to say you're all the BEST.
