Okay. Now an old man fishes him out of the sea and keeps him to give to his wife? I have a feeling that this is not going to end well. His wife will probably end up dead, knowing how sad this book has been. However, I forgive the author because great books many times are sad and depressing, and I love how she writes. Every word she uses is perfect to describe with, but also meaningful to the story. I'm going to keep reading and see where it gets me.
He's a scarecrow now. a sad, old, scarecrow. He was lost and found again by an old lady who put him in her garden. The whole book is so depressing, but I am in love with it. Throughout all of this horror that Edward is going through, there always seems to be a glimmer (previous vocab alert!)of hope in his eyes. That just shows you how descriptive the author is. Hopefully, he'll get out of this rut before I contemplate life.
Today, Edward has been taken in by a homeless child. How depressing can you get? It gets worse. His sister is sick. The problem I have with this book is that it makes me so sad, but I can't put it down! Another thing that I love about this book is that it makes you like every character Edward meets, even if they're not a very likeable character. I also like the variety of people that Edward meets throughout his journey. Hopefully, he finds happiness with one of them.
