Thursday Talks: A Disheartening Series Finale

TT - A Disheartening Series Finale.png

Have you ever tried reading a series and the ending of it shattered your heart into a million pieces? How about feeling disappointed in the finale of a series you really loved?

As a reader, it is no joke to invest a lot of time reading a book especially if it is part of a series. We know that aside from time, sometimes we also put our emotions while reading it. It is really just heartbreaking to find out that the series you really loved just ended in an unexpected way and that it’ll crush your precious heart.

Disappointment, most of the time, has something to do with what we expect on the ending. How? For example,

*You are expecting to see a character(s) you love to succeed or win in the end but what if he/she doesn’t? What if that character died on or before the finale?

*You believe that the main problem in the series will end but what if it doesn’t? What if it stays unsolved and all the characters effort to fix it just went into nothing?

*You wanted a perfect ending (HEA, peaceful world, etc.) but what if, it was worse than what you’ve wanted?

It’s really upsetting, right? You don’t know how you will vent your anger out. You are unsure if you’ll hate the series already or the author itself. But, even if it was finished that way, I know that you still love the series but you just can’t deny the fact that the ending just ruined your beautiful relationship with the story and its characters.

As for me, all I can do is to hope that the author will write an alternate ending just to satisfy my needs to see the finale I’ve wanted to read and of course, I know that it’ll only happen if a lot of readers will try to ask that author to write it and/or the author is willing to do it.

How about you? Did it happen to you already wherein you’ve put in effort and time to read a series just to get in the ending feeling frustrated? Can you share at least one series that the finale breaks your heart?

  1. I was a bit frustrated with the final book in the last book in The Cage Trilogy. It wasn’t horrible—just sort of a let-down. 😦

    • I’d only read the first book and I like it and based on what the others are telling me, the ending is not that great as the first book. I was also spoiled on the finale so I don’t think I’ll read the rest of the books. Thanks! 🙂

    I was a little frustrated with A Court of Wings and Ruin. It wasn’t that any of my favourite characters died, I was just kinda underwhelmed 😦
    Great post ☺️
