I am probably not the only one who feels this way! Attention Christian-book authors: quit putting out multi-book sagas!!! The "Left Behind" series is an excellent example of this kind of overkill - over a dozen books! While the books are certainly exciting and does make me buy the next one, I am nevertheless extemely nettled that I must not die in order to find out what happens!!! Do these guys have hundred-year boat and house mortgages or something ??? AND ANOTHER THING, other Christian-book authors are getting on the band-wagon by offering books that threaten open-ended endings ! All these sequel-mania has caused me to be very leery of beginning a book that promises to stretch into the future and has caused me not to buy them (examples are "Soon" and "Babylon Rising"). I would hate to die without finding out what happened between Jane and Tarzan...well, you know what I mean . I am probably in the minority. The publishers must think that there are readers who don't mind multi-generational books. Sigh. Ok, now that I got THAT off my chest, do all those sequels bug you too?????????
