Re: Logen Ninefingers and the rest (spoiler alert)
I felt the same way in regards to the idea that we were basically left hanging in regards to some of the characters. But I don't see that as rushing the end or bad plotting. In fact, I think the complete opposite. It was quite brilliant on Joe's part to leave us wanting more.
Plus you now have to look at what he has written since. Best Served Cold features some characters from the triology. And Heroes will also. So there is some reason to believe we will end up at some point have books bringing back Logen's tale or maybe Ferro. Seems like Joe made us dive into his characters and now is trinkling through the follow up books to make us read more. Quite clever on his part.
