What would you expect in this book's sequel?

Post by Eutoc »

Gary has been wrongly convicted for killing his girlfriend, that's depending on the Gary you're referring to. How do you think Gary would remain at peace with himself knowing fully well be doesn't deserve to be in jail. On the other hand, how would the guilty Gary comfortably continue his free life after committing such atrocious act. What would you want the author to give to his readers in the sequel to the book? And yes, there's a sequel.

I want Gary not to be convicted of his girlfriend's murder. I want the writer to stick with the plot and give us an amazing book to read and review about

I would like to see another story, not related to Gary, but related to the multiverse theory. I will definitely read the sequel, so thank you for this information!

I would wish that the criminal Gary get's to serve his sentence and reform. I would also want to see the good Gary achieve his most needed dreams and justice finally served. I know it will be a long rollercoaster of events for Gary to attain peace of mind and finally learn his lessons from the experience.

I really don’t know what to expect. Probably that the Gary in jail would try to convince others of his innocence, the free Gary would move on, and the Gary that actually committed the murder to just go on as before

I don't think so, because the sequel of the book title is 'The Futility of Vengeance' so it'll be a clear message that Gary will take revenge. I'm also interested in knowing how he will do that!
A great book will speak to the reader! - Anilllll :reading-2:

I would hope to see time travels, maybe that would help Gary go back in time and prevent himself from committing the brutal murder.

I totally agree with you. I dont want any more Gary(s), I expect something else. Something more intruging and mind blowing

I dont know, dont you think that's a little bit far fetched? Just dont get your hopes up because trust me, time travel is not happening.

No matter how i look at it, i dont see how the sequel would continue from Gary's POV. It should take a new turn, start a new chapter. In short, it should be another story entirely, or slightly connected to the first.

To me, it’s confusing as to how there is a sequel. Because in the first book every outcome is explored. One of the Garys is innocent, but apparently the one in the sequel is guilty. So how do we know which one is the true plot to follow?

I agree. I think there is room for the development of the other characters as well. Maybe they could help Gary, the lucid dreamer learn from the whole experience.

I would expect to see a refining of the original story. I mean what will be done about the mess Gary, the lucid dreamer caused. How will the other characters be developed. For example Sinead, how will she react or move on from her experiences?

It would be interesting to read about Gary's experiences while incarcerated. How does he move on. What will his daily experiences be like? Would he try to figure out how to deal with the situation that he has been thrust into? How does he deal with the fact that some part of him wanted to commit such a gruesome act?
