In the passage, Helen’s brother talks to the reader through a journal which both describes the situation he has confronted and his feelings about what has happened. He uses “I” as a narrator in the story which is himself and the style of writing is familiar with the way people telling someone stories; it directs to the reader. For example, he writes “And now comes the part you probably won’t believe, but… I didn’t go to the meeting.” The reader can feel that the message is sent directly to whoever read it; he suddenly wants to approach to whoever read his diary. As the reader knows since the beginning, Helen tries to find the reason why her brother commits suicide, so the narrative style can pull us into the detective mode in the same way as Helen. Besides, the sharing information between the character and the reader creates the effect to the reader’s perception when they investigate the case with Helen.
