Dim twilight of life
Regret most  the parting from
Those once held so close

Ken Goree

I just finished a “classic” sci-fi book, Childhoods End.  I found it a bit bleak.  Though I enjoyed the wonderful writing of Arthur C. Clark, I didn’t get an uplifting feeling of joy at the end.  I also didn’t feel  the tearful chill one gets from the triumph of the human spirit, even in loss. 

Quick, I need another book, with a more uplifting ending.
