The story tells of the attraction of opposites and of a love doomed to fail - and yet be the one and only true love that will ever be known.
The treatment is restrained yet powerful. The language is lucid and flows well.
The reader is given a clear understanding of the thoughts, feelings and motivations of the protagonist. Even though the character is nothing like myself - nor anyone that I would want to be - I was caught up in his predicament and very much sympathised with him.
