I was not happy when I reached the conclusion or final part of The Hobbit because I didn’t want it to end! Sometimes I’m happy when I reach the conclusion or end of a book because the book wasn’t all that great, but there are just some books that are so good. I’m glad that the movies of The Hobbit came out, but I didn’t like it when I saw the conclusion or last part of those either since they were also so exciting. To make things better, I’ve begun to write a really good book with no conclusion or ending part at all which will take care of this problem once and for all.
