Well presented and well written, but a tired, cynical tone that makes it a depressing read.

At times cynical but at others endearing and inspirational I enjoyed the different voices in this piece and the poetry and turns of phrase as the story unfolds. I liked the different 'voices' of the characters. Easy to read and even easier to enjoy. Well done.
