Tuesday, another list. This week the list is top ten best/worst series enders. I
only found six, because apparently I don’t finish series. I should really do
something about that. So these are the six that I could come up with. As always
this meme is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish.
I can’t do this list without Harry Potter. I read Harry Potter from when the
first book came out, because my mother is awesome. I basically spent ten-ish
years of my life waiting for the next book, and then finally it came and it was
awesome. I choose to ignore the epilogue, it bugged me a bit, couldn’t it just
have ended? It would have been great. I loved it though. I cried so much. Oh
Fred, and Dobby, oh the feels.
I am a huge fan of Wheel of Time, and I was pretty
much distraught when I heard Jordan died, and I had some very unpleasant
thoughts, in that I was angry with Jordan for dying. Then Brandon Sanderson
came and saved the day, and it was awesome! It wrapped up the series, it made
me cry so hard. It had the longest chapter of all time, all was good.
Yes, this book was amazing. The whole series is
amazing, and I feel like Carey was constantly trying to outdo herself in
creepiness and horribleness. And the last book really goes all out in being
friggin’ disgusting. It’s really amazing, it wraps up the series, it leaves
enough questions for the next series.
I can’t honestly say I remember everything from this
book, it’s a while since I read it. I seem to remember a whole host of crazy
storylines coming together in one big, crazy bang. Arthur gets moanier for
every book, Ford continues being delightful, Zaphod’s a complete nutcase, it’s
It all started out so well. Lyra was awesome in the
beginning. Then she met Will and it all went to hell. She became all
girly-girly and dependent on Will. The last book was too long, the religion
aspect became too heavy handed. Miss Coulter also changed completely, that was
annoying. It just really bugged me.
There is one thing about this book that basically
ruined it for me. I loved Narnia so much. And then Lewis decided to not let
Susan into heaven. And it took me a very long time to even realize that Aslan’s
kingdom was Heaven, cause I’m slow. Anyway, Susan isn’t allowed to go to
Aslan’s kingdom because she chose to get over Narnia, which really pissed me
off. I feel like Susan made a logical choice. She wasn’t allowed to go back so
she decided to put Narnia behind her and go on with her life. And therefore she
is not allowed to go to Heaven with her brothers and sister when they die. It
is horrible, and cruel and it made me furious, so I hated it. GAH.
