This fufilling story starts out introducing Henry Sugar as a rich man who has done no work in his entire lifetime. He became rich from inheriting money from his father. My favorite part of this story was when Henry Sugar went to the casino and won a large sum of money because of the special ability he had obtained over three years of vigorous training. I should not tell you anymore about the story because I would rather have you read it your self.
