"However, towards the end the book described how the people lived."
or is it
"However, towards the end, the book described..."
comma or no comma after end? and should it be toward or towards?
Yes, you need the comma after "end" -- otherwise, it's very easy to misread.
Be sure to read the Usage note.
ok. and should it be toward or towards?
If you're in the US, use "toward." The use of "towards" is more commonly used in British English than in American English.
oh, interesting. ok thanks!
