Can you still love a book that's wonderfully done through the main stretch, but then the author doesn't manage to nail the ending?


@paulczege endings are hard; the only endings we have in life are preordained or tragic. Triumphs are temporary and giving so all literary endings have to figure out the sweet spot to provide closure without trivializing what came before or might after. In journeys we find the joys of life and likewise in literature I think that so long as the ending doesn't undermine what came before i can still love the journey I was on.
