Uhhh, could someone please tell me why a publisher would let a writer give them a book that's supposed to go to print that is clearly not finished??? I don't even care about the poor explanation he gives in the last chapter... if you want to be a writer, deal with it and don't make excuses. I think he just had no clue what to do with certain characters so he puttered about a bunch of boring side stuff so he could "direct" instead of write and "get one more season in" with this book. This series reads like a TV show more and more so I've had to learn to expect characters that had a lot of potential for development just end in a rather poor way. There's more attention to detail given to things that possibly show the author has some inner issues to deal with, or something, who knows, but this book has been the most disappointing in the series. Now I'm off the read the next one and then wait until about 2015 or later for the next one (if his pace at publicizing the last two were any indication). Hopefully by then, the TV series will be done and I can just play catch up so I don't feel compelled to reread the series like I did with Harry Potter lol.
