It's just curiosity. But parents telling them is not a good idea. Some parents assume that because the child has experienced many of the same events the parent has in that household the child probably knows why the parents had to divorce. Even so, the parent has to find a way to heal the scar that the child has instead of leaving it as it is just because the parents experienced the same thing.

Will has a hard time accepting the role, but realizes that it is the only way to live if you desire close relationships and people to remember you. Will begins to tell the story of how his father dies and the story comes full circle for Will and Edward. Will Bloom will eventually take on the role of the crazy old man with all of the stories as his son grows up and as he grows old.

Being a Pantaloon in this story is not a bad thing, as we can see many people from Edward’s life show up at his funeral to remember the most interesting person they have ever met.

By hearing from Grandpa’s POV, it allows the audience to connect with him easily because the letters are personalised, allowing the audience to hear his

What does the text SAYS What the text DOES “Nothing is beautiful and true.” (p.43) I chose this quote because even though Oskar wanted to be like his father so much, he was still traumatized by the tragedy. Ever since his father died, he has become a more complex thinker.
Perhaps it was guilt for not having sought her out and spoken to her during the trial. Perhaps it was the loneliness that followed Michael around after she left when he was fifteen. More likely than not, Michael’s lifelong obsession with Hanna caused him to reach back and try to hold on to one of their old rituals.
