(no subject)

So. I just finished reading "Pegasus" by Robin McKinley. I have kind of gotten used to her making facinating worlds, then just dropping them, so I kind of expect this is a stand-alone book.

BUT. So much is left unanswered. :( I spent most of the book wondering about the motivation of one particular character, then got to the end and have to wonder about the motivations of lots and lots of (historical) characters. Seriously, a cautionary tale would make so much more sense than what seems to have happened.

AND, the book ends with all sorts of stuff still hanging. In fact, I would go on a limb to say NOTHING has actually been decided. If it's the start of something, fine. But as a standalone, it leaves a great deal to be desired.
