it was amazing
bookshelves: classics, fiction
Read in October, 2007

A powerful critique of the dreams people hold and the reality that surronds them. Hickey's character embodies the hyporcrisy that engulfs many of us in that he tries to hide his terrible murder by justifying it as freeing him from the chains his wife bound him in. The reactions that the roomers at Harry Hope's place have could be anyone's reaction to realizing the awful truth that, sometimes, dreams don't come true.
