Just finished The Magician's Assistant by Ann Patchett. I wasn't paying attention to the percentage read on my Kindle and the ending caught me off guard. I guess that never happens with a book, but it was kind of interesting. All of a sudden it was over and I still had forward momentum, so I had to do a little post-configuring in my head. I would read a sequel to this book, although I normally dislike series and sequels.
