Fitz should have gone with the Fool. I was so upset by the ending of that book. Fitz and the Fool belonged together. I hated that he ended up with Molly.
The ending with the Fitz and Fool was great (apart from the Fool thinking Fitz was dead, that was just depressing). The rest was bittersweet. The sort of thing that stays with you long after. However...Why does he have to be with Molly? It's not right! It's unrealistic! It's unnecessary!
I agree. I'm not sure that he should have ended up with the Fool - their ending was much more powerful the way it's written - but I thought it was too neat and a little unbelievable that these childhood sweethearts could lose each other completely, become entirely different people and then settle back into a life with one another.I hated that he ended up with Molly.
I honestly don't know how you can say that. Am I the only one that noticed the gulf that was created between Fitz and the Fool after the Fool was brought back to life? Did you not notice his lack of emotion and state of confusion. The Fool is a different being after his resurrection. He is a Prophet living beyond his time and therefore can't hold the same relationship with Fitz. In fact, I think Fitz was acting somewhat selfish when he brought the Fool back to life. He only considered the relief of his own grief and didn't consider how the Fool would feel. The Fool accepted death and he died in a state of mental happiness knowing that Fitz would be able to live a happy life afterwards.
Also, I can't believe how you hate Fitz ending up with Molly. I absolutely loved that ending. In fact, the main motivation I had in reading the Tawny Man was knowing that there would be some sort of reconciliation between the two of them. How could there not be? When Molly was torn out of his life, he was absolutely devasted. That was probably the most heart-wrenching scene in Fitz's life for me. It might be because at the time I read it I was of a similar age to Fitz and I could relate to that better. So, I was hoping that by the end Molly would at least understand his absence from her life. The way it ended was even better than I imagined.
