other than the fact that she waited to give him some poon, I don't see aything about her that makes her special.


Although, Instead of trying to killl him when he went with another woman, she dumped him.



odified to sound less annoyed. Cause I heart Tripe!  ;D

No need to be so angry. Is everything OK?

She actually made him reconsider his ways, which really were not all that healthy, now how lasting those changes of behavior are it's difficult to say but because of her influence he did start to make a few changes that might actually be good for him.

But it was a very elementry question to what was a throwaway line.

Consequently I answered with as elementry a question in response.

The post after that (phrased with less annoyance) would have been a better question all along. :)

Personally, I think it was a throw away ending.


"Then I found the one I wanted to have an actual relationship with"


BORING! You dissapoint me Henry!

Is that a lyric?

And how would you have had it end?

yea, from whitesnake




i don't know how I would have it end. i think I would have liked to see the first crazy chick come back (Lydia?). It just doesn't seem believeable to me that Henry would make this life altering decision, and when the life altering dec happens at the end of the novel is the audience supposed to believe that nothing interesting happened afterwards? To me, that seems way too close to "and Henry lived Happily ever after"

I'm done now, and you're crazy.  That was not a happily ever after ending.  It was just another lie until there is another better lie.  I mean this relationship will last just as long as the others.  The only reason it is good now is because he finally got to have sex with her, and wants some more and is intrigued by how she carries herself.  Like he admits himself, it won't last.

Yes I think he's entering a moment of purity until his old evil spirit rises up again. Still I rather liked Sara of all the women in Hanks life throughout the book.

Yeah, cuz she was the only non-pathetic, hero-worshipping slut.  Plus she makes her own beds, which is cool.

Why would the organic Turkey taste so much different from a regular turkey?  I guess it was just the way it was flavored.
So really he was pointing out the natures of these two types of women by comparing their culinary tastes.

OK I think Tammie was burned out of many things and needed more extreme experiences in order to register any sensation (in this case flavour).

Oh and also it's possible Tammie had no sense of smell left from prolonged nose candy use and so her sense of taste would have been almost nonexistant.

Sara on the otherhand was incredibly puritan and so any really spicy flavouring would seem dangerously polluted.

Plus Hank was a big fan of kissing, and her not giving in to sex was like very long foreplay.  He liked that on some level.
