The last section is quite short and I can see that once I pick up the book again I won't be putting it down until finished.
So much has been revealed, now I am eager to see how it all fits together.
You are right Judy, I see a number of connections with this story and the classic books mentioned. I did get a huge kick out of the prescription Dr. Clifton prescribed to Margaret:
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, The Case-book of Sherlock Holmes. Take ten pages, twice a day, till end of course. LOL!
Is it just me or did Middles have more of a rainy day mystery feel to it and less of the gothic? I am not complaining, loving mysteries like I do but I was wondering if the whole Charlie and Isabelle thing in Beginnings had conditioned me against milder gothic elements. Yes, the inclement weather is there along with the overall dark feel of the story but it is like it lost its punch for a more subdued impact.
I hope to finish Endings soon. I already have two co-workers interested in reading this one as soon as I finish it!
