    " This story is so sad. It's so heavily laden with greed that it makes me sick. The mother and father destroy their marriage, their home and their children with their greed. The oldest, a boy, sets out to prove to his mother that he is lucky because, to her, luck means you can always get more money. As the house whispers, "There must be more money!" the boy named Paul continues to do what he can to become lucky never telling his mother his secret: Sometimes he is sure about the winning horse in the races. This is an awesome story with a great moral. It is a requirement for my English 102 Ideas and Values in Literature and I'm so glad it was. "
