Has anyone finished reading it? I started but can't seem to get into it yet but am trying really hard to. Is it a good bood for the ending of the trilogy?

Thanks

Trisha

I actually really liked this book.  But then again, I like most of Roberts' books.  I don't seem to be as critical of her as others and once you get past the fact that they are all really about the same thing, just different interpretations, they are good stories. 

As for Pagan Stone specifically, I thought it did tie up the trilogy really well, even though the ending was a little rushed to me.  The actual solution to the problem of banishing the "big, ugly bastard" as Gage liked to call it, was a little contrived, but did not take away from the overall story too much.

I will admit that I found it harder to relate to Sybil and Gage as a couple than I did the other two couples.  Maybe because they spent so much time in the other books being SO antagonistic to each other. 

Maybe if you skim through the first chapter or so, you might get more into the story.  I know that for me, the beginning was the hardest part to read, seemed much slower paced.

I waited for this one to come out to read the first two, so I could read them all back to back.  Like Heather said, I wasn't as into Cybil & Gage as I was the other couples but hey, they had to get together, right?  I enjoyed the whole trilogy and wasn't ready for it to end.
