6968 I think the man tracking the father and son may have been aware of what was happening to the father and wanted to make sure the boy was with the good people at the end. I don't think the man would have ebeen willing to approach sooner for fear of the response.

I don't think the book is supposed to leave you with good feelings at the end, only that the boy may at least be with good people when it's all over for him. It is not meant to be uplifting or to wrap up neat and tidy. I think the ending is pretty fitting for what came before.

6968 It would take too long to address each of the points you raise, but I think you may be trying to read too much into the story and should just take it for what it is, a father and son's struggle to stay alive in a post-apocalyptic world despite the overwhelming hopelessness of the situation. I'm not sure what part of the ending you have an issue with, but it made perfect sense to me. Hey, to each his own, right? I loved the book.

6968 "Heart-Shaped Box" was a terrific book. Hill definitely got the good genes. I'm a huge fan of King and Hill has a bright future especially after "20th Century Ghosts" and "Horns".

6968 Hey, everybody. Just joined the group today. I tend to read thrillers, mysteries and crime dramas but will consider anything that looks interesting. Looking forward to some good discussions and possible recommendations.
