Henry was quite a creepy individual. Yes I think so. I also think that Libby trying to get a hold of Phin is kind of cruel. Henry said Phin was compliant in the kiss, which indicated to me that he allowed Henry to kiss him wi. But the overwhelming individual response to the virus, at least here in New York City, has been one of grief, compassion, and altruism. Granted, Tildy is a cynic and a nihilist, but as Kongoli devastates the U.S., her take on human frailty is borne out. Stephen Gaspar Honestly, it never even occurred to me that Henry would want to kill Phin. (If you’re in the latter camp, you probably haven’t been able to watch Veep during the Donald Trump presidency.) But the novel also seems to have started with a particular end point in mind: the degeneration of humanity. I dont think Phin reciprocated the feelings and probably was frustrated that Henry wouldn't leave him alone. I agree with Stephanie, he didn't kiss him back. Stop here because there are spoilers ahead (unless you don't care in which case, go ahead). or ask your favorite author a question with For a long time through the end of the book I thought Phineas was going to die, but it would be good to understand how he ended up where he did. For those who haven't yet watched it. [I think he wants to kill Phin. I felt like a lot just wasn't adding up with him. Doctors and nurses have flown in from all over the country to assist at hospitals with the worst caseloads. The scenes that haunted me the most in the book weren’t the ones with lungs frothily disintegrating into pink mush or world leaders bleeding from their eyeballs on camera. [I see it as Henry needs to kill Phin in order to become him. The book is riddled with scenes that evoke the current moment. Without spoiling The End of October, it’s fair to say that things don’t go well. But it is only a book. As Wright has it, after the director Ridley Scott read Cormac McCarthy’s 2006 apocalyptic novel, The Road, he asked Wright what event might have happened to precipitate such a callous and bestial world, with its cannibalism, infanticide, and wanton misery. Wright calls influenza viruses “beautiful” for their structure and functionality; he compares a cytokine storm, in which the body’s immune reaction destroys the body itself, to “total war.” Ebola, in Wright’s description, was all the more brutal for being “a disease that specifically targeted love and compassion,” infecting those who kissed, touched, or took care of the afflicted. Reader Q&A, That's the vibe I got-that Henry will be visiting F/Phin in Africa. In The End of October, the Kongoli virus corrupts those it doesn’t infect as quickly as those it does. You can pose questions to the Goodreads community with And in that same moment, the governess realises that Miles – who she's holding in her arms – is dead. The only chance he might not kill him would be if Phin perhaps fell in love with Henry. [I got the impression Henry wants to see Phin, not to kill him, but just because he is still so obsessed/in love with him. Henry's love for Phin is so deep that I don't believe he could kill him. Welcome back. But when I started reading Lawrence Wright’s The End of October a few weeks ago, I had a very different reaction. All Rights Reserved. The American president, a man with his own cosmetology room and tanning bed in the White House (not to mention a horde of querulous, entitled adult children), outsources the management of the crisis to his vice president, a former governor and radio host. Yes, that's how it came across to me. He already tried once by making him sick and then thought about putting a pillow over his head when he locked Phin in his room. Especially given the reveal at the end, when it turned out that Phin kissed Henry back, before leaving him in the middle of the night. But the twist in the second last episode caused due to Dani, the au pair, saving Flora from the Lady in The Lake, a.k.a the ghost of Viola Lloyd, results in the tragic curse being lifted from the house, and with it, all spirits are instantly freed from forever having to haunt the grounds of Bly Manor. Yes, I think so, although I don’t know if it will be to kill him or just to see him again. It was, as they say, too soon. The Book of Henry is a disaster to its bones, as mind-bendingly broken as The Room or Birdemic or any other piece of cult outsider art.
