really liked it

For some reason the ending left me cold, I loved the book, the characters, the convenience store Ibey Lubin was a character in itself. I don't know why I didn't like the ending, it just seemed as if it feel short after such a grand book. Bobby dies, Sarah stays with Lou? Or would she have left him for Bobby if he had not died? I loved the small town descriptions of everyday life. Richard Russo has an amazing talent in building a story and fleshing out the characters that come to life. I wanted to love this book! But I ended up, really liking it instead due to the ending that somehow fell flat for me.
