I hate it when a book just ends—like, just stops, and you have to wait until the next book to hopefully get a solid conclusion.
But after the second book… in let’s say a 4 book series, you find the second book just stops, no conclusion at all, no satisfying end of any kind, no-doubt you’re going to have to wait clear to the end of the last book to hopefully receive the ending that made reading 4 books worthwhile.
No matter what, I feel it is vital to give the reader a bone and end the book in some way… have some closer and then open the dramatic beginning for the next book, what’s so wrong with that?
The more series I read the more I see this happening, I don’t care what the reason is, give me something at the end so I feel I spent my time doing something constructive… who wants to wait until the next book just to get some small piece of closer or satisfaction.
Am I alone here? What do you think? ... What else really bugs you about—whatever?
Thx for any comment you might leave!!
