Goodbye Middlesex - It was great reading you!

I just turned the last page of Middlesex. Of course, I saw it coming,...
the last 100 pages
the last 20 pages
the last 5 pages ...
part of me desperately wished that I'd misread the final page number (I always check page numbers before starting a book - call me anal!) and another chapter would be magically tacked on.
I did not want to let these people go! I'm sad. I miss Cal -- what happened to you Cal? Are you with Julie???

I don't want to pick up another book because I don't want these wonderful characters to leave my headspace. Oh, woe . . .
