Actually, that sums up this reader’s problem post but let me elaborate. I think most of us has experienced that horrible moment when you realized that that awesome book that you have just finished has ended in a cliffhanger and you have to wait a whole freakin year for the sequel.
Here are the 2 biggest reasons why this is a serious problem.
1. After you finish the book and let’s say it ended in a cliffhanger, the waiting is agony and most probably you’ll have big expectations and when that sequel has been released, there’s that possibility that you’ll be disappointed.
2. Most likely, because of the long wait, you’ll forget some things that happened in the previous book and you’re like “dafuq is this character or da hell is happening?”
when reading the sequel. Unless you’ll take time to reread the previous book, you’ll definitely forget some things.
But really, this is something that can’t be blamed with the author or with the publisher. A friend once said that a good book should not be rushed, thus we have to wait. And quite honestly, authors have other things to focus other than writing a book
even though I hoped someone will kidnap my favorite author and force them to write nonstop. This is just one of those problems that doesn’t have a solution unless you own a time machine or a device that can fast forward time.
Speaking of not fair…
George, you’ve gone too far…
