For me, it was very obvious that he was acting, and that's not a good thing. Hearing him say, "I will find him!!!" over and over in the beginning actually made me sort of cringe. It's not the words he was given; it's the way he said them. He just felt like a walking-talking cliche to me.
“Whoever writes English is involved in a struggle that never lets up even for a sentence. He is struggling against vagueness, against obscurity, against the lure of the decorative adjective, against the encroachment of Latin and Greek, and above all, against the worn-out phrases and dead metaphors with which the language is cluttered up.”
