Although I was very unsatisfied with the ending, that I will not spoil, I did find some parts of the book interesting. The characters, both well developed and described, are compatible in the sense of taking care of one another. One takes care of the physical protection and the other takes care of the brain work. Aside from the character developements, I took interest in the setting descriptions. Every aspect of the main character's living spaces were deeply described. It gave phenomenal insight into the lives of workers during the Great Depression. Even from a third person point of view, what workers thought about and hoped for were explained. I rate this book a four because of the pitiful ending, not that it was bad, but that I do not prefer a resolved yet mysterious conclusion.
