And especially with TSFT, I liked how long it was. I kept expecting to be over soon, and then I would realize I was only half done and I was like "Yes!", cause I never wanted it to end. However I was absolutely heart-broken when it did.

Yeah but I love emotional books. Even if something makes me scream/chuck the book across the room, I have so much respect to the author for dictating my feelings so easily. It takes a lot of work to make someone cry, or even make them mad, and to be able to do that with a simple pen and paper is just amazing.

Exactly, the books I get really attached are always my favorite. So much of the time there is this indescribable feeling, like I never want to leave the book, that I get when I read, and this series was definitely one of those.

Location : At the temple, there is a poem called "Loss." It has three words, but the poet has scratched them out. You can not read Loss, only feel it.

I love books that make me really attached.

I just finished reading My Sisters Keeper and I was audibly sobbing at the end. I cried for the last 100 pages straight.

it was great Very Happy

I actually just finished reading The Sweet Far Thing for the second time today. WOW! It's taken my breath away twice now! I've never been so attached to a series that I almost cried at the happy ending because it meant that this would be the end, there would be no more Gemma, Felicity and Ann. OH! An let's not forget Pippa and Kartik. It seems to me that all of the characters are real, I've grown so attached to them!

****SPOILER*****

So when Miss McCleethy, Pippa, Kartik, and even Mother Elena met their end, I couldn't help but feel sad that the journey was over. No more fighting the Winterlands creatures. No more Circe. None.

Actually, I was thinking just barely, in all series, SOMEONE has to die. I was surely expecting Pippa dying in one way or another, with her corruption and all. But in all books, just one good guy that you simply love has to meet an end. (At least Kartik's wasn't tragic, he went willingly) In books I've read where EVERY ONE of the characters has made it out of impossible situations alive, I just think a lot less of it. It just doesn't seem right that they can win and triumph without losing something. (That's why I was EXTREMELY dissappointed with Breaking Dawn)

I agree with you BP. (see, it's catching on already Razz afro )

That's the reason I dislike Twilight too, because there's little to no conflict at all in any of the books-- the entire thing is just Bella and Edward up on cloud 9. Seriously.

I thought someone would have to die, I mean almost in every book series now has someone die in it. I just didn't want it to be Kartik! Die, Fowlson, Die!!! I didn't want McCleethy to die, even though she wasn't that good of a character. I don't think she should write anymore books, also. Most books that do have extra books get overstretched and tiring after a while. Besides, a book without Kartik! Crazy!

I also think Libba did a good job with the whole madness thing. It kind of freaked me out the first time I read it, but it ended okay, I guess.

The way I deal with the Kartik loss is that in my mind, they had sex in the realms, Gemma got pregnant and Kartik lived on in her child.

That is my fantasy ending. That is what I say happened and that is what did happen. In my mind. tongue

LOL. I think Gemma would be too young to have Kartik's baby. If Libba Bray were to write a sequel, I think it should be that Gemma somehow is transported back in time by some realms' magic to when her mother was killed and could do it all over again, but still remembering doing it before. She should, like, go to the Tree of All Souls and put Simon or Pippa into the tree and get Kartik out. Pippa just needed to die sooner in the third book. She was annoying.

Put SIMON in the tree?!?!? You're nuts! While I still hated Kartik, Simon was my boyfriend!

Me and my friend are losers and we talk about going back to London, then to Spence through that door in the East Wing to get the magic from Gemma and Kartik in the tree (Gemma went to live with him) and they love us so much so we get lots of power... We're SUCH losers...

I'd gladly come! UR You're right. Simon's too..innocent, I guess, to go into the tree, even though he got Gemma drunk off that green stuff.
