Moreover, I think a really good book is the one you can pick on several times, discover something new and enjoy it like the first time.
(Movies as well, the ones you never get tired of watching over and over again...)
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.
Oh agree as well...
Not fan of series books.
I think, the characters lose the magic of their limited existance to one story.
On the other hand, if you are really attached to the character (this had happened to me quiet a very FEW times), you want to keep it alive and going

Truth is good characters are immortal-
It happens the same with movies.
Actually, trying to remember what really got me pinned u was Lost (the tv. serie). Oh god, I wanted it to never end! =( lmao.. However I realized
later, an end- was a necessarly "evil".
I miss it... is my fav serie of all times- but I see, that if it was kept on for longer, the enchantess would be obscured by trivial simplicity.
I ramble, therefore I am.
Well, very nice ramble. .
