    I picked this up and the ending confused me. What really was following her? It was a good book, but it still has me wondering....

    Some sort of magical bear seems like. I kept thinking of my Native friends and their mythology.

    I had no clue. By the time I reached this story's end, I just didn't care anymore.

    TGWLTG is not one of my favorites.

    I think it is part spirit,part physical being,much like the wendigo of the northern states and Canada..though we have to remember,tricia was starving,so is some of it hunger induced psychosis?Could be either,or neither..that is what is cool about SK,we don't really know..just bring a .30/30 with you if you plan on hiking the Appalachian trail.. ;)
