Yes. That’s true. I don’t usually read series and to be more specific I have read only two in my whole life. You may now wonder which ones I have read, well, two years ago I read the Uglies series but I didn’t finish them. I got bored and stopped in the middle of the third book. Now, after all this time I finally finished the Hunger Games. No, I have not read the Harry Potter series!!! Are you still with me or have you fainted? Don’t kill me, I mean to do so in the near future.
I don’t really like series. Let me tell you why.
First of all, the author in the most cases makes his main character end up being heroic. What I mean is this: at first the protagonist has faults and knows them very well, such as selfishness and pride, but as the story proceeds and it must come to an end, the main character ends up having those faults vanished like he didn’t have them before and has become a better person. The pattern is the same and is repeated over and over again, that becomes very annoying. Same characters, same love triangles and even same themes.
But, most of all what really annoys me is the fact that the end is disappointing and it gets boring as you keep reading. Take for example the Hunger Games, the first two books were amazing but the Mockingjay was not so good. At all. This thing, of the disappointing end, really gets on my nerves. Or sometimes, just because authors don’t know what else to write they make their characters do things that they normally wouldn’t do, just because they need to make the story going. Or else making some unnecessary twists.
But I would be glad to prove me wrong. Tell me what’s your opinion and why you prefer series. If you want, please suggest me some good series that I should read.
