Reading Through the Nyte

If it has pages, I will try to read it. Admittedly, I will not always succeed, as some books honestly do not deserve to be printed, not to mention finished. After reading them, I like telling people about books-- whether to avoid them or seek them out... and so it goes...

Callahan's Con (The Place, #2) - Spider Robinson BIG FAT SPOILER WARNING
This might be the one and only book of the series I had issues with. No really. I get it; the series had to end, Spider had to move on, shit was hitting the fan in his life and he wanted to put these folks to bed. But DAMNIT, WHY THE FUCK DID HE KILL DOC? And WHY **that** way. I mean, he twisted himself into pretzel shaped assholes to save Jake’s wife when logically SHE died, but then to off the one character I loved so deeply that when I read the end of this book I sobbed for twenty minutes? It was cheap, and I feel a bit used, to be honest. If Jake’s wife had died as well, I’d feel less betrayed—but that was almost as if Spider was a bit too attached to those toons, and that they were the avatars of himself, Jeannie, and his daughter… and if that was the trust, shame on him. Sometimes the good guy dies… and the good GAL too…
