my friend told me it was horrible, not horrible as in bad writing, horrible in the "how could you do that?!" sense. Originally i wanted the reader to feel betrayed, but theyre right, it is evil to do to the character. Throughout the story, my main character has a recurring nightmare of being attached to a machine in a dark room. At what would be the end, with the happy ending and all. There's a few blank pages. Then the real ending comes, where the main character finds himself in the room hooked up to a machine, but its real this time. A few doctors are hovering over him. They scream with joy, and announce that he's been in a coma since he was 15. They explain he was in a car crash while in a moving truck to his new home, where the story begins. Refusing to believe the nonsense, he vainly tries to reach hsi friends who dont exist. once he is alone for the night, he turns off the machine keeping him alive, not wanting to live in his life. is that cliche in any way? or disgusting as some people put it?
