she died and then turned off the light? He never said good-bye to her, he didn't cry, he did not show any  emotions for a woman whom he loved so much. He said it was like saying good-bye to a statue and then  walked home in the rain. The only thing I can think about this scene to make it realistic is that he is numb, he  is so heartbroken that he can no longer feel pain. But overall the ending is realistic, it shows that life does not  always have a happy ending and that things in life can make us who we are. Also, it shows how the choices  we make can affect our lives and if we make the wrong choices bad things can come of them. Since Henry  left the war and went on the run with Catherine it brought on unneeded stress and not only did he lose their  baby he lost her in the end from that choice. Had he stayed in the army they would have had a better chance  but he may have been the one to die instead.  2. What do you believe is the main theme of the novel?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
