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. The story’s characteristic action and words can define their personalities.
Leo an old worker in the café, in the story he is represented as a rude and annoying character. And these characteristics can be shown in the story. In a lot of times, Leo will always interrupt their conversation for example when the old man said “when I laid myself down on a bend and tried to think about her my mind became blank I couldn’t see her…” after the old man had said that Leo rudely shouted down the counter and said “Say Mac!

The Paper Boy is more like an mystery character in the story there are not much details to define this character but there are a few action that we can explore for his character. 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. As the story takes place at 1947 it is really rare to see this “ picture” because at that time people will always tend to judge people quickly and in this case the Old ...
