Comments: An involved and confusing story. The characters lack harmonious and healthy outlook. The hero is selfish and resorts to antisocial activities. He yields to temptations readily and proves to be lacking in self control. The heroine acts in fits and starts. She wakes up too late and lakes recourse to desperate and fatal remedies. The author appears to be a frustrated individual smarting under several disappointments. He lacks the will to fight and gives in reality. He is likely to blame others for his own shortcomings and failures. Unfit for group endeavours. REJECTED
