You are right. There really can't be a sequel. I suppose we could hear more about Jim...but the outline of the remainder of his days has already been provided, including some information about his end. So a sequel would even lack much suspense about THAT. It was a beautiful ending to a beautiful book, and I am happy with that and will treasure this book always, without the need for a sequel.

However, here's to Jamie's next book!

I agree!! You could call me a late starter - I finished this book last night. After spending a whole day moping around at work, heart shattered, I had to find somewhere to collect my thoughts and read what others have to say - so I'm glad I found this site.

Right now I don't crave a sequel, I finished the book in tears - like many others have stated here, but they were not shed without hope for Jim and what the future might have brought his way.

As for talk of a film of the book - aren't they always crap? - there isn't a film I could watch that could make me feel the way I do today.
