He only saw the bad sides of love, and because of that, he kept himself from everyone; he never realised the good sides of love until later on in his life.

How does Swindells build sympathy for Link? I think Robert Swindells tries to make us feel sorry, sympathise and empathise for the character Link by making him, who is in this horrible and terrible situation of ending up on the streets and ending up homeless because of his mother’s new and brutish boyfriend in his home, which we wouldn’t be able to bear, cope or even manage with in life. I am going to be writing the points, evidences and explanations (PEE) about how Robert Swindells makes us feels sorry for Link and my personal opinions on how I think Link feels and why and also using good quotes to support my answers. First of all, one of the ways which Robert Swindells portrays Link as a character which we can feel sympathy for is by having him talking directly to the 2nd person. One example of a quote is “You should see what a state Vince gets into.” He also often uses rhetorical questions for example, the use of the quote “Good ‘eh?” This allows us to be drawn into his way of thinking and we can try to understand and everything he is going through.
