This week’s TTT topic is Standalone Books That Need a Sequel
I do not have much, as it turned out I was reading a lot of the series recently. And some books, that were supposed to be stand alone, like The Handmaid's Tale, are now being turned into series.
I loved the book and characters. Withing the novel Celeste Ng made some allusion on how this or that replica and action might affect the character in the following years, but it was never too suggestive. Beside, I am so curious if Nath and Jack ever got a chance? And I would like to see the way their emotional development from this point.
I was always wondering to what adults could grow our main characters: Mary Lennox, Dickon and Colin after such a dramatic and deep change in their childhood.
One of my favorite couples. I wonder did they struggle later with putting back a factory. Was Margaret still close with workers after she got into her new position. Would she still have issues with her new mother-in-law?
I just do not know, but I want to know how it turned out for those iconic couples. I know there are a lot of spin offs, but they are never written by the same author. Was a sequel even a thing at that time?))
I remember I did not like the book too much because of the ending, so I would love to know what would happen if the Johnny did not die, but continue his work. I know there is a TV series but I was not hooked on it.
