Do you ever read a book that appears to be leading up to a tragic ending and you are sad, but then you resign yourself to it and decide that it is the only way the book to end, only to have the author miraculously change the circumstances so that the ending isn't a tragedy after all but a happy one and then you are disappointed? I hate that. I wish more books ended tragically. Maybe it's because I always want everything to work out in real life. In that way, I am a hopeless romantic. In books I am willing to let the ending be sad because it isn't about real people. I find it more romantic.
