The Pearl

What was Kino’s reaction after hearing the comment from the third visiting pearl dealer? If you were Kino, would you react in the same way? Why/ why not?

Kino feels that he is being cheated and he is correct. All the Pearl dealers are in collusion to cheat Kino out of his fortune. Kino vows to go to the capital. The last pearl dealer offers Kino 1500 pesos but Kino leaves. If I were Kino I would have done the same thing. I think I might have been just as blinded by the pearl as he is. The chance to make my family's life better plus a bit of greed would consume me. I can't say I blame the guy.
