Also, on Annemarie’s journey she leaves girlhood and enters woman hood. A lot of wild things happen in the story but I only have room in this essay for some of them. Annemarie’s journey from girlhood to woman hood makes the story better in many ways. One of the ways that Annemarie’s journey leads her to woman hood is when her mom and Henrik tell her that her Great Aunt Birte died.
He provides her with evidence that he is a Bodega Bay, and so she drives there. When she arrives in Bodega Bay, she asks the post man a variety of personal questions about Brenner’s family, his home, and how to get to his place. When she was asking these questions, it made me feel uncomfortable. She really wanted to know, and came off as invasive and eerie. When all of this was happening, I was sure that she was going to be causing issues that could’ve been disturbing.
Adichie, hence, makes use of numerous techniques in order to convey the extent to which the war has affected their identity, who they really are. Firstly, we witness a constant shift in the narration, whereby the first part of the novel is about the early sixties, the second part is about the late sixties, then we move back to the early sixties once again and we end with the last part, which is, once more about the late sixties. Likewise, we witness a stream of consciousness which is often present: ALLYBOKUS -‐ 6 -‐ “She drove over the bumpy dirt roads lined by tall grasses and thought how interesting it was that villagers could tell you something like […] It was raining. The roads were marshy. She glanced at the looming three storeys […] They would be in Cameroon by now, or perhaps probably in London or in Paris, […] her tyres skidded a little […] she sat still for a while, watching the raindrops slide down the windscreen.” (17.191).

Jeff focused on just the Thorwald’s apartment for the majority of the movie because of the disappearance of his wife, and this has given Jeff more details of Mr. Thorwald’s whereabouts. He knew where Thorwald would put something, when he would make calls, and what he would pack a suitcase, and these are just some of the aspects that Jeff was able to get more information about. In addition, the conflict between Jeff and Thorwald with the camera flashes, was another scene where the perspective gave an image of how the interpretation between the two characters were different but important to see the the different angles. Like only knowing one side of a story, the understanding of life will be unclear if there is only one perspective used. When multiple perspectives are added to the mix, there will be a clearer picture of how life is understood and most enjoyable.

Some being these: “That man over there says that women need to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches, and to have the best place everywhere.
When Beatrice visits Aunty Ifeoma (pages 247 to 251) she says that her mother climbs out of a “yellow unsteady-looking taxi” which can be interpreted as a transferral of Kambili’s views of her mother (i.e. unsteady) onto the taxi. She describes her mother as follows: “She walked slowly, holding onto her wrapper that seemed so loose it would slip of her waist any minute. Her blouse did not look ironed,” (Adichie, 2013). This is a noteworthy description, since throughout the novel the reader can infer Kambili’s understanding of a situation from the way she describes her mother’s clothes.
