Thanks for sharing that story. I admit that I had never read any of his work before, and found the story to be really enjoyable.
The funny thing I noticed is, while reading it, I noticed him do all the things that I'm being told from several resources not to do while writing. Using the word was often, using passive voices, very long sentences, even had a few grammatical errors... and you know what? None of that mattered. He told the story beautifully and that is what mattered first and foremost. Thanks again for sharing it.

My pleasure. (And I agree with your observations. All that passive voice caught my eye too.)
