(Prize Review #4) Sorry it's taking so long.

This was very powerful. You managed to portray him so well; the mind set he had was never wavering. The way he thought of his wife and himself was steady. I feel sorry for Emma, of course. She had to have been a very strong (yet also weak) person to stay so long. I can imagine her crying at night, hoping things would get better. You painted and entire portrait of her for me, despite not using her any more than a few lines. The way she's a teacher and constantly tries to connect to him. It's so heart-breaking. And what's worse, she will probably feel guilty for his heart attack. :(
Anyways, this was written so well, as usual. Wonderful. --Jenna

Author's Response: Thank you for yet another wonderful review that makes me giddy and sets the tone for a great day.

It's true, Emma probably would feel guilty about the heart attack. It's always sad to see people like this characterization of Dudley, and even more sad to see the people they bring down into the dirt with them. These people enable them because they love them, but they are essentially creating monsters. So the whole idea of a person becoming this pathetic, self-absorbed, helpless individual all because of how he was coddled by his parents and then enabled by his wife to do nothing for himself - it really piqued my curiosity. The psychology of it interests me quite a lot.

I'm glad you enjoyed this!
