    Do you find, more often than not, that a novel is a great read until you get to the ending. The ending is frequently a let-down -- a disappointment. The technical term is "anti-climactic". It's like the author didn't have a great idea for an ending, and just quit, with the reader left feeling that more was needed. It doesn't really wrap everything up. I've read several novels that have ended that way. And some of them have been bestsellers.

    Anyone here share that experience?

    Yes indeed.

    It's a huge pain.
    I run audible at work so listen to a awful lot of books, and it's the worst to have this happen.

    Min reason I like
    David gilman
    Simon scarrow
    Wilbur smith.

    They finish of well.
    And in Wilbur's case it ends in the best possible for me, villain either makes it, or the hero dies, normal life.

    Just occasionally I'll feel that "huh" feeling. And sometimes I just wish the story had continued past the point it ended. These would be more in the vein of a family saga, rather than a thriller or murder mystery genre. I like long stories and historical novels where the characters are well developed and we're taken along through their lives with the ups and downs. I do also, however, really enjoy a great psychological thriller or police/prosecution procedural. Generally I find these end OK, if not fully satisfying.

    I have recently finished a Wilbur smith one and it's ending just sucked, in both books with the same family.

    Talk about a bit of reality I guess seeing most of my family have come from same background and same issues.

    Oddly the books has tons of location my wife's been around the drakenspirge mountains and bushman lands.

    Even more interesting is she is part bushman part Zulu and speaks 7 of their dilects.

    I read constantly, unfortunately most of it lately has been from the Kindle Unlimited library, which leaves too much to be desired in general. Best thing about it is that I can pick up and put down the stories easily between work breaks. Terry Goodkind is one of my favorite "real" authors though. He puts out a new book about once yearly. Some of the later volumes in his Sword of Truth series were too filled with repetitions of things from earlier books, seemed like he was struggling for new ideas and trying to fill pages to meet the publishing deadline. However, he did manage to get past that and picked up again with better material. Robin Hobb is another writer I've really enjoyed, her ideas were fresh and original.
