hi, i just finished 'floating staircase' - it was great but i got confused at the end. when travis tells jodie, let me tell you what really happened with kyle, and then he 'meets' kyle, does this mean he really is kyle? any thoughts are truly appreciated.
I think that the suggestion is that Travis went swimming alone without his older brother and died that night and that Kyle didn't exist at all. Travis is dead throughout. Kind of a Jacob's Ladder thing.
Maybe not though. It's confusing and as much as I enjoyed the book, I don't feel like reading 500 pages again to try and work it out.
I just finished this book last night. I loved it right up until the end because now I'm totally confused. I never considered the Jacob's Ladder aspect. I don't know if this happened, if he was crazy, if he was dead . . . Any other ideas out there?
