What did you like about this script? I liked that this script presents such a severely psychologically damage character with the protagonist, Brent. I also enjoyed seeing the level at which Brent is still haunted by the terror his father bestowed upon him as a child continuously present throughout the narrative.

I also liked watching Brent’s love for literature grow throughout the script, especially considering he started living in the woods when he was nine years old.
