To Janie, this room doesn't feel like a part of the house. It's more just a door to another world, a portal to sorrow, from which Dorothea appears and disappears at random. p.46
This was a sad series overall, but Gone gave a some hope with a very appropriate ending. I liked Janie and I liked Cable and I loved their relationship. Not always easy and not all consuming, but very realistic. And poor Janie with her choice that seems like no choice at all. I didn't have any expectations with Gone, but I found it very satisfying. The writing is intentionally choppy and has sort of a dream-like quality and there were a few adjustment moments for me. But all in all Janie transitioned well through the series as a whole and I think got the ending she deserved.
