I went through my goodreads and came up with... I think it was 13 books.

November 23: Characters I’d Love An Update On (Where are they now that the book is over?)

1) Carrie McClelland and Graham Keith in The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley. I hope they are still together.

2) A Density of Souls by Christopher Rice. I read this back in my early 20s and I don't want to give away the twist that only the reader knows. But I want to know if the characters ever find out their soap opera twist.

3) Eva and Kevin in We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver. Maybe an update on their lives on an anniversary of his crime in a novella.

4) Jack in Room by Emma Donoghue. I would love to see him as an adult and what he remembers of his childhood.

5) Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel. Do they ever rebuild civilization? There is also a question I asked in the spoiler section of my review.

I read so many series with closed endings that I could only think of 5.

Some other ones I thought of I realized have sequels I didn't know about and so I could read it to find out more.

Good list, Steph. #4 is a good choice. See if there's any trauma from his early childhood.

November 23: Characters I’d Love An Update On (Where are they now that the book is over?)


1. She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb
• Jack Speight - did he ever get caught and put in jail because he tried the same sh++ with a different girl? Did his wife ever leave his ass?
• Dolores - at the end of the book she's trying to have a baby with Thayer. Are they able to conceive?

2. The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
• the house is a character, imo. Does anyone ever bulldoze that evil home?

3. The Secret History by Donna Tartt, they all end up in a pretty dismal place but:
• Charles - does he ever get his alcoholism under control?
• Camilla - does she ever start to build an actual life for herself instead of just being a caretaker?

4. A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams
• Stella - does she ever leave Stanley’s ass?
• Blanche - is she ever released from mental institution?

5. Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
• Max and the narrator, they lost their house and a police inquiry. What is married life like after those events?

6. We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
• Merricat and Constance have a very unhealthy relationship and need to get away from their house. Do they ever take care of their issues?

7. The Lottery by Shirley Jackson
• the town.....do they ever stop with the b.s. stoning?

8. Tess of the D’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy
• Angel, he never deserved Tess. He came to his senses too late. Does he get remarried, learn from his past mistakes, and appreciate his second wife in a way he never appreciated Tess?
• Alec.....freakin' Alec. Like Jack Speight, does he ever pay for his crimes?

9. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
• I don't like how Mercedes and Dantes don't end up together. Ewww at him ending up with that child ward of his. I want him to be with Mercedes.

10. Rappaccini's Daughter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
• Does Giovanni feel bad for the poisoning?

11. The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen
• Does the prince ever learn who really saved him? Does he feel bad about rejecting her?

12. 1984 by George Orwell
• Is Big Brother ever taken down?

Thanks!

You have a fantastic list. I have all those questions too and I almost put The Count of Monte Cristo and 1984 on my list too for the same reasons.

Never hold back with putting things on your list.

Bulldoze and then get a priest to perform an exorcism on the ground.

You have met authors.

And what about a memory about a favorite book you took out from the library as a kid?
