I love these two characters. I like the trivia in the book, there are quotation of the songs "panic" "How soon is now" "please, please, please (let me got what i Want) e many others.
Hang the blessed DJ
Because the music that they constantly play
IT SAYS NOTHING TO ME ABOUT MY LIFE!!
This is a good video for visualizing Henrik and Bjorn. Watch for the street signs!
Two more thoughts on Henrik and Bjorn:
The way they never seem to grow up. The way they cling to that damned moped, their one moment of glory and prestige in island society. Anders remarks that they look exactly the same as they did when they disappeared. Life has moved on, but not Henrik and Bjorn. This idea gives some hope to Anders. Maybe he can pick up his life and resume it after living like a drunken zombie for the last three years?
Since I posted this, i read Handling the Undead
and Little Star
. In Handling the Undead
Flora is the adolescent outcast given to "self-destructive" behavior. She does have a mentor in her grandmother who helps her with the causes of her "otherness." I don't recall if Flora had any particular taste in music, but she is a bit of an internet troll. In Little Star
, the themes associated with Henrik and Bjorn come roaring back, not so much with Theres (who is more of a zombie than anything else) but with Teresa.
