The ending was not dark, and none of the characters we cared about died except the ones we were expecting for a long time — Sam and Laura. The fault here does not lie entirely with Verne. After you finish the book, add information about the author, identify your favorite section or passage, and summarize the book. I personally believe that our universe exists due to God (note the intentional non-use of the phrase “created by”) but as it is not a fact that can be proven, it cannot ever be reconciled with scientific discovery and presented as fact.
