A Fairytale of NewYork Review:
This novel is very realistic and shows the real and bitter fact of life alone. Though people living in New York probably are more alone than anyone else. Cornelius stays alone after his wife died. The problems he faced for basic necessities required to live, were not provided. He is probably a non-heroic character. So looking those entire characteristics book is highly interesting and reality-based. Coming to New York never worked for him Cornelius was sad but he always tried that things should work out.
