I read the entire trilogy...um, last summer, I think, when I'd come home
from college with a huge compiled list of recs from the list. And it took
me *so* *long* to slog through the entire thing. I kept on reading because
I wanted to know how things worked out...
...but then of course I didn't like the ending. But then, I don't like it
when other people think it's a happy ending and I'm going "but they're
dead! it's not happy! people are dead!"
Also, I have very little patience for people doing incredibly stupid
things and then being surprised when they get into trouble, like, say,
Fitz and the girl-whose-name-I-forget. I mean, sheesh. If you can't get
married, and you're in a time/place with no birth control, and you
*really* can't have a kid, then. um. Would it really have killed them to
Speak the truth, but leave immediately after.
