  14. 14. MRP for Fiction Books "A new experimental study from the University of California, San Diego shows that people who flip to the last page of a book before starting it enjoy it more. In other words, spoilers don’t spoil stories. Contrary to popular wisdom, they actually seem to enhance enjoyment. Even ironic-twist and mystery stories – which depend on suspense or surprise for success – aren’t spoiled by spoilers, according to the study to be published in a forthcoming issue of the journalPsychological Science"
  15. 15. MRP for Fiction Books "The same held true for mysteries. Knowing ahead of time not only didn’t hurt enjoyment of the story but actually improved it. Why does this happen? The answers go beyond the scope of the study, but one possibility is perhaps the simplest one: it’s easier to read a spoiled story. It could be that once you know how it turns out, it’s cognitively easier – you’re more comfortable processing the information – and can focus on a deeper understanding of the story. The overall findings are consistent with the experience most of us have had: A favorite tale can be re-read multiple times with undiminished pleasure. A beloved movie can be watched again and again."
