a good story will suck you in, regardless of your connection with the characters but there's nothing better than closing a book and wanting more, not because the story was incomplete but, rather, because you've become attached to the characters in such a way that the ending almost feels like you've lost a friend. every so often I'll see a movie or read a book and I'll spend time afterward thinking of where they go from there, what happens etc.
Oddly enought I'm not always a fan of series books so, when an author I like writes a book and then follows it up with another about the same characters, if I don't totally love the style and writing, I'm done with them. Very few authors have managed to keep me going with series types books, mainly because they become the same thing in a different location. I think those attempts at capitalizing on a character's popularity tend to reduce the quality of work, resulting in formulaic stories that are pumped out as quickly as possible.
I ramble, therefore I am.
