Since no one has answered since you first posted this question, you can safely assume no one here has read this story.
If you read these questions carefully, you'll see that all of them require YOUR OPINION and YOUR THOUGHTS about the story. You cannot write about what other people think. You must write about what YOU THINK about this story.
And that prompts this question from me: Have you read the story?
