The main character—and the sole survivor of the events of the book—is left with severe trauma and disillusionment toward the rest of the world.

Max, traumatized by what he’s seen, deliberately heads back to the island as he senses a deep hunger inside of him. Whether this is a sign that he’s been infected or is merely imagining symptoms (as the ending also makes it clear that he shows no signs of infection) is unclear and left to interpretation.
