This is my first review here and I am unsure of what to say as I rarely read any review myself, but after reading this work I felt like publically praising it somehow.
I like to read happy things, and obvious dislike unpleasant things.
This work deals with unpleasant things, the appearing of good things and the loss of them.
Yet I liked it very much; while dramas are often awful when well-done their bittersweetness is empyreal.
This work managed to achieve a sad, yet satisfactory, egregious end; and went some further to show how life just goes on.
The plot of everything which ends badly is because someone could
not open their mouth and say the truth.
That's the formula and most works are complete trash trying to follow it, unrealistic melodrama is the undoing of most works, yet this one is one of the few who could do it successfully; no forgiveness-betrayal-forgiveness cycle or extreme character - just one long straight line of decisions and consequences.
People are not so candid, honest or direct to always say the hard truth; this work is an example as the character himself sometimes thinks 'there is no way I can say it...' and more than just a plot-driver it feels deep into the character and makes one wish for courage for him to succeed or cheer for him - and during the story there is more than one thing the read would think is best for him.
A wonder to watch unfolding, hope for the best and be conformed with the outcome of mistakes.
