I really enjoyed reading it. Plot[ edit ] The story takes place from the perspective of Link and Shelter. One day, Shelter meets Link and Ginger, and he declines to give them money when they beg from him. He solves his biggest problem - the disposing of the bodies - by keeping them under the floorboards.
He was brave enough to face all the odds in life alone in London including the fear of death. After Shelter is arrested by the police, she tells Link of her true identity. If u would read this book you will start to make an extremely bad image of shelter in your mind.
He buys them shoes and cut their hairs. In the midst of a mid-life crisis, he is incredibly harsh. Link is friendly to people but likes to be anonymous as he appears to be running away from past. Furthermore, Shelter does not understand why he could not stay in the army and serve the country, when all this garbage are allowed to stay on the streets.
By contrast, he is on his own again. Life is hard, cold and unfriendly, until he meets Ginger. After a few bad days of being homeless he meets Ginger, a streetwise person who has been homeless for quite some time. He settles in London where a serial killer goes around and kills homeless persons.
Gail had a supporting role in the book. After a few days Ginger disappears but soon enough he meets a girl called Gail who then Link falls in love with. Thinking he is no longer safe in Bradford, he goes to London.
I dislike this character because of his cruelty to towards homeless people. Bewildered by his discharge, and without occupation, he takes his frustrations out on the homeless who make the streets look "manky". This was proven later on in the story when he suffered much more on the streets of London.
However, one day, Ginger leaves Link for a while because he wants to have a geeze at something with his friends but does not return. I also clearly remember the occasion of betrayal, when Gail told Link that she was doing a report on homeless people and then went away leaving Link alone by himself.
He is really confident, or should I say over confident about no one catching him. Link meets a guy called Ginger who teaches him the tricks of sleeping rough.
