I know you didn't ask me but I feel an explosive need to voice my input because I absolutely loathed that shitty wreck of literature myself.
It's obviously all about opinion, but the way I feel about it, was that it was poorly written, rushed and just plain out unecessary. It's okay to murder characters but it's not okay to murder the charachter of the characters! I was left with an impression that the author suddenly got bored and just rushed down an ending just to get it over with.
Agreed. As I was reading it I got the impression she'd just kind of written it as she went along with no forward planning. "Ok so this thing happened then, uh, I passed out? Yeah that'll do, I passed out. For the 17th time in a chapter. Oh look, I'm suddenly in my 30s." What?!
