I don't like it when they do it in books either. Some times I feel betrayed by the author. After all, I have grown to like, form an emotional bond with a character. Then at a stroke of the pen, the author erases that character from existence.
Sometimes it works, but is hard to get over. For example the cast from the Original Dragon Lance series. It sucked when the dwarf died, and then the kender [the dwarf's friend] also died later in the books. I could never move past the original cast's deaths, so I stopped following the books.
Is a person a failure for doing nothing? Or is he a failure for trying, and not succeeding at what he is attempting to do? What did you fail at today?.
