Now this sounds terrible, Misfit, but I think it was for the best. Otherwise we'd have to read all the details of how Arlette creates the role of Anna Karenina, how she sleeps with the director, her co-star, etc, the premiere, what she wore to the premiere, the after-party, what she wore to the after-party...

It honestly read like the author didn't know what to do with her next, and the book couldn't go on forever, so...

Do you know what's spooky? That song she used to sing about the fishes.

Lol, good point. She does have abrupt endings though. Forever Amber sure stopped on a dime and I think WEWW did the same (although not quite so extreme as this one).
