What does the novel reveal about you as a human being?
It reveals that I am sympathetic, caring/kind, soft-hearted, and I can't stand watching people being mean to other people. because it is horrible to treat another humans like that. A saying that i have heard is called "if you don't like being treated like that then don't treat other people that way" and I think that that saying is really important, helpful and correct.
