I was a little curious to know also what he died of. Maybe it'll come up later in the story. I find it very interesting considering it's a true story and I don't know anything about the time frame all this happened in. it's like a good history book. I read the second part before the first and the relationship they had with each other drew me in I totally understand the complex state of being alone "the satisfaction of solitued played against the chronic sense of lonliness" and how "they seemed to grow closer while apart" I'm going to read more of this story I know that for a fact.
