In addition, we will discuss the effects that these characteristics may have on the theme of the ‘awakening’ and how they allow the reader to have a broader vision of the character’s change of ideas and thoughts. The angle of vision in which the story is told suggests us that the narrator has “a view from above” (Genette 100). This narrator is known as third person narrator, which is the predominant in this novel and is usually omniscient, meaning that the narration is told by someone who is exterior to the story and has a panoramic view (Genette 101). This kind of narration is known as external narration due to the fact that the narrator is able to observe the characters and the events from the outside in an objective way, giving the reader an image of both the characters and the actions.

Also, we never hear the governments side about the giving the people handicaps. In conclusion, the author uses these little literary elements to develop a theme in the story.

The narrator’s wife, from the beginning of the story, was telling him about the visiting of a blind man, whose she used to work for one summer ten years ago.

She has read everyone’s thought and explored multiple fact of the story in depth. The narrator has also explained the emotions of the character in way where anyone who reads the story would be able to feel the emotions of each and every characters into the story. The author has also increased the suspense and intrigue of the story as she made the readers solve the mystery at the same time vee, the main character, in the story does. The narration of the story guides those reading it through the story and makes them think if there are any such incidents that has happened in their life before. The author also makes the characters feel real in the way it is being told.
The story is in a form of a recount of an incident coming from a 12 year old girl. This plays an important role in deciding the style of narration. Cleverly, Roald Dahl has kept the language as lucid as possible. The dialogues are of substantial importance. If the sentences were constructed using heavy words, the story would have been an utter failure as a twelve year old girl does not have an extensive vocabulary.
The scene takes places from 00:42-00:59 and takes place in an interior location. The setting used is a hallway in a house near a stairway, outside of a bedroom.

The narrative is told from a first person peripheral point of view, also known as first person limited. The story is not told from a third person point of view. It is clear that this story is in a first person point of view because in the first chapter, Death introduces himself, and from then on, refers to himself using words like "I". I know that the point of view is first person peripheral, because Death isn't the main protagonist in the story, Liesel is. In addition, he isn't aware of everything in the story, therefore, he can't be omniscient!
Throughout the whole story the setting was focused inside a bank. The environment was more people being attended by merchant tellers. Also it was based more around money where nothing but money was being handled. It seemed that the building had darkened windows. Due to the fact that no other people seen what was going on from the outside, that there was in fact a robbery in progress.

This is shown by the white’s anxious fear of the population of another color: “There were riots, but these were outside the city, where people of another color were quartered.” (p. 1 ll. 18-19). Furthermore, it is described as if these colored people are some kind of animals, who are not allowed to enter the suburb.
These options imply a kind of arbitrary text whose development is managed storyteller. The fictional narrator is free to their story, and the reader does what she wants which brings us to the author's freedom to do the same.
