Reviews for The Boxer

That was really sad but very true, in most countries major cities young people set out with big dreams and if they don't come true for many of them their pride stops them from asking for help.

I really loved it...just as much as I love Simon and Garfunkel which for the record is alot! But poor guy you killed him!

I'm a huge fan of Paul Simon and your fic is a beautiful homage to this wonderful song : you perfectly conveyed the despair and the sadness of it...great job...(and I must mention that I've been lucky enough to see Paul Simon in concert many many years ago and he sang "The Boxer" a cappela a magic moment, one of the best parts of the show)...thanks for sharing it with us !

So sad, but very true! Kids hope for a "Walk on the wild side" and find nothing by heartache. You expressed it so well.

Nice continuity between the beginning and the end of the story.

a real realist story I bet when you think about it I bet it has happened like this more than once in Vegas

Oh, that was really nice. It's always sad when they think they can't go back.
