Writing backwards

What are your thoughts on writing a book that goes backwards? I mean, from the end to the beginning? I've always thought that this would be a cool concept. I'm just not sure it would sell.

It could work. I've some pretty popular movies that involved a lot of flashbacks. Heck, The Princess Bride is essentially one long flashback, and it's a cult favorite.

The only way to try it out is to try it out. Write a novel the usual way, then do it again from finish to start, or have the whole idea in your head and do it that way.

I would love to read it. I think it's a brilliant idea. I like movies that are this way. Do you already have it planned out? Do you almost have to write it all and then flip it?

I think this is brilliant! I love movies that give you the ending and you have to figure out the who and motive. I bet it would be pretty hard writing this way.
