    Books you didn't want to end?

    So, I've re-read The Dark Tower series for the 3rd time and once again I wished there would be more, especially where so many realities are interwoven and connected to one, yet each make a differance. I know that to add more to the story would more than likley spoil it, but I can't help, but wish that there would be more.
    I also felt like this when I finished IT, hoping there would be more to the story and more added onto the characters I grew to know so (too?) well.

    So has anyone else gotten so hooked on a story that you didn't want it to end?

    At least tell us what it's about. Maybe I've read it, who knows?

    In my opinion, I don't think Eiji Yoshikawa's Musashi should've ended the way it did. In fact, if it were possible, he could've written a few more books till the end of Musashi's long, illustrious career as a swordsman. But there was only so much the author Yoshikawa could do, though, knowing that it took him quite some time to finish the work (it first appeared in serial format in a Japanese newspaper); I suppose his death kept him from writing more Musashi Miyamoto stories.
    Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.

    lol, this happens to me alot when I read fanfictions...

    But, anyways, the book series I really didn't want it to end is that series by Chris D'Lacey. It dosen't have a specific title, they change with each book. But the first is called The Fire Within, then Ice Fire, then Fire Star, then The Fire Eternal. I can't begin to describe to you how much I loved these books! It was so awsome, and I was really dissapointed it ended! I liked it because I just love books about dragons and fanatasy and all that....so, yeah.

    I never wanted Land of the Blindfolded to end. It was such a good series. It made me want to be a good, honest person. And have faith in the world again.

    Another one I didn't want to end was Kagetora. I mean it was a good ending but there was sooo much angst in that series that I could feed off it. I didn't want it to end.

    And last but not least I didn't want Simon Says to end. I know romance novels are supposed to have happy endings but I liked it the way it was. Spontaneous and out there.

    Our love will go on until the end of time. I will always be yours and you will be mine.

    Re: Books you didn't want to end?

    For me... I have a few, the series: This present darkness and Piercing the darkness... I definetelly didn't want to finish reading... I wanted it to have even more pages and I wante the story to continue... but oh well...
    The other one is The House... the way it finished made it feel like it was incomplete... like something else was missing... I felt it like it just cut off in the middle of the story... but it was the end... Oh crap!
    I would like to read a lot more stories about Dangerous Girls, or The adventures of Max Ride...
    Those are for now the ones I remember...

    The WHOLE Dark Tower series? Every single book with info connecting to the series? Books in the series aren't the only books with Dark Tower references in them, my mom says. Have you read 'salem's Lot?

    More to the point, the Door to December, the Taking, and Intensity by Dean Koontz are three books I wanted to read more of. In a desperate fashion. The characters are so endearing and the plot is usually left VERY open. Koontz is a dopey optimist and, as he repeats often, his books are about hope and the human condition. Which is a terrible way to end the book.

    Another book, called Headlong by Simon Ings, was AMAZING. I very highly recommend this book to any who like sci-fi books. But WITHOUT the corny monsters. It's not a very long book, maybe five or six centimeters thick. No idea how many pages, the book is at home.

    It's edgy in all the right places and real ponderous see. Though if I could pick just one book I'd like to see continued, it would be Intensity.
