Lex – 2009-10-07 11:11 AM Susan and James, I agree with both of you. You can’t please everyone. People have different tastes, different ideas of how they think the book they’re reading could or should end. A surprising and unpredictable ending is great, whether it’s happy or sad. But the boring and predictable endings to the last two books I read were dissappointing to me at least. But guess what, I’ll still buy those two authors next books, because I do like their writing in general. I think that the way a writer completes his piece of work, is important, especially a new, ‘unknown’ author. On a side note, I just want to say thanks for commenting. Alexis

Van Johnson’s right about Gabby Johnson being right, and I didn’t build my ice cream shop with these two hands…*Ring*  Hello…Uh-huh…uh-huh…Any more and I might have to pay a royalty.  *Click*

THE END.

You know, J. K. Rowling had an idea how the whole thing was going to turn out before she wrote word one (not that the end was cast in stone, mind you).  Then, as she finished book 7 I heard an interview where she said some of her fans were not going to like it, but she hoped most would, and anyway, she liked it and that was what really mattered.  I think that is the way it has to be for all of us.  Don’t you?
