2) Is imagery an important part of the novel?
Yes I think imagery is an important part of the novel because you can visualize what is going on in the book while reading it, you kind of comprehend what is going on better when you use imagery. Whatever the narrator is saying you can picture it in your head the scene ad everything.

5) What does he use to help the reader understand his journey?

6) What makes this memoir interesting?
What makes this memoir interesting is knowing that some of it is true, and picturing everything he says in the book. I pictured everything from chapter to chapter, and the fact that someone really did go through what he went through...
