I am writing about a book. So what should I use "till/to"?

This book is so gripping, that it keeps you ensnared till the last word.

This book is so gripping, that it keeps you ensnared to the last word.

I think that "till" should be used with a period of time and thus it doesn't sound natural here. What do you think? Does it sound natural? If yes, then why? And could you explain it to me with a few examples as well?

  • So what do you think should be used @Lambie? "End", "drop" are actually related to a time period... But I guess "till the last word" isn't.. But I don't know, that's why is asked... So what should be used here : "till" or "to"? – It's about English May 25 at 14:39
  • But will "till" or even "until" sound natural in this context, @Lambie? It is more about "should it be "till" or "to"? – It's about English May 25 at 14:50
  • Will "to" sound natural? And I asked why does "till" sound natural there? Is it related to a time "period" as well? @Lambie? – It's about English May 25 at 15:03
  • I answered your question and you keep repeating it. Dictionary examples answer this question. Please show research you have done. So I removed my comments. [Does "to" sound natural? not will] – Lambie May 25 at 15:05
