Should books have closure, even if they have a sequel or are in a series?
YES! I absolutely prefer each book in a series to have their own ending, and then a set up for the following book. I hate cliffhangers – really not a fan. Also, can’t stand books that just STOP. That’s not a complete book, that’s a ploy to sell more books.
Yes, Yes, Yes. Books should definitely have closure. One of my biggest pet peeves is when a book ends where there is NO real ending. I like cliff hangers for the most part. I am not talking about that. I also tend to be fond of both tragic and ambiguous endings. I am not talking about that, either. What I truly can’t stand is when a book ends and book two begins and really all that was needed was a new chapter, possibly only a new paragraph.I feel like a lot of indie published e-books tend to do this and basically let’s be honest… it is all about money. This absolutely fricken (rhymes with chicken) annoys me!!!
Yes. Most assuredly, yes. I need closure with each story. I’m fine with setting up the next book of the series. But finish the story line for the current book first. I don’t necessarily always need a happy ending. And I’m fine with a cliff hanger. But stopping in mid though only to stretch what could be one book into two, or three, for that matter, makes me very frustrated. And I might not even read the next book in the series.
