This is why I feel the authors tone is understanding towards Chris’s story, since he can relate to him through his own experiences.

In the novels The Story of Edgar Sawtelle and The Perfect Storm, the authors express their respective themes through the use of specific literary features. The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, a work of fiction written by David Wroblewski, tells the story of a mute boy named Edgar growing up on a dog-breeding farm. Edgar’s family struggles to communicate with him, and, because of this, he creates a life of solitude where it’s just him and his dog.

Risks are a possibility of loss or injury; all humans at least once in their lifetime have to do something risky. If life has no risks, you’re not really living it, since we humans do not grow as a species (or society) if there is no challenge in life. People in this world must have challenge and struggle to overcome an obstacle in their life to discover the real world. This way a person will grow physically and most importantly, mentally, to never do something adventurous or take the easy way out is on them. Krakauer, Emerson and Thoreau all have their own ideas on risk, but they all have in common is that risk can change a person for the good or bad.
