The Disappearance of an Ending
The story immediately had my attention. The only time my attention wandered was when I couldn't stop listening at night and fell asleep! There were so many unexpected twists and turns that I kept expecting more and more. That was why the ending was so extremely disappointing. It was as if the author had just had enough of the story and wanted to call it done. Maybe she had already begun another book and decided to move on. I had begun to suspect that the Emily at the end was actually not the real one and the fake one was actually the real one. Now THAT would have been the kind of ending needed to this story! It was a missed opportunity to create a really great ending!
