This is done for the sake of keeping the reader’s imagination running while also leaving them on their toes anticipating what is going to happen next. For this to be created Poe uses verbal irony. For example, when Fortunato declares, ‘“... the cough’s a mere nothing; it will not kill [him].

Sometimes the author may put figurative language to portray what the character is feeling, and sometime if the text is extravagant, it may cause the reader to feel the same way, such as this quote, “One more stab to the heart, one more reason to hate. One less reason to live.” (page 109). This is such a powerful emotion of hatred toward something that is very sad, such as when Eliezer lost his father.

Lastly, we can interpret it do mean Brother has found some closure even though he blames himself for Doodle’s death.

When Hamlet first encounters it, he doesn’t require much confirmation that the ghost is who it says it is. The ghost tells him that his uncle killed his father and Hamlet believes it, not expressing any disbelief; in fact, he calls it “an honest ghost” without doing anything to investigate if what the ghost said was true or not (1.5, 137).

I think Hey-Soos is Ben 's subconscious trying to help him cope with dying, while at the same time leading him to face the truth.
Overall this book was captive. What caught my attention the most was the way Q was persistent even if at times he wanted to give up on solving the problem he was always lead to trying to find Margo one way or another.

At first, I Wondered why the author didn’t write about Margo making the other decision, why pick the sad ending but then I realized, that it was a better ending the way he described it. I would recommend this book to others because in my point of view, I like how it has many plot twists throughout the story and it gets you thinking every time.
