A Tree. A Rock. A Cloud Character Analysis
In the book A Tree. A Rock. A Cloud we can see the three drastically different character and all these character has their special personality to make this story up, Leo the rude and annoying character, The paper boy who is smart, nice and empathetic and last the Old man who is depressed but at the same time nice.

Trough his words and action I believe that The Paper Boy is an really empathetic and nice boy, one really part of the story, while The Old Man walks into the café he sees the boy and said “I love you” the other people on the counter laugh but the Paper Boy tried to laugh but the man was just sad, the man ask for a drink and the boy accepted (Page 1). The boy can have just rejected the drink or even ignore him but at last he decided to talk to him and hear his difficulty.
