Through the rain he could make out the words Kansas City pound engraved in the side of the appalling van. While, the dog knew he must get away he also knew that it was much too late. Rufus was too weak to run and by the time the worrisome dog could stand up the man had already stepped out and was marching toward the dumpster that he laid upon. The monstrous, awful man stood over him with the aggressive leash and the small frightened dog knew from there that he would be condemned into the dark and evil pound. “Come on!”

The main character is extremely overconfident, ignoring the advice that those who know much more about the land give him.

The man is so ignorant that he even ignores his own observations. When it’s observed that it could be as cold as seventy degrees below zero, the main character is more amused than concerned at the realization. As he notices his cheeks are freezing, he acts like it’s nothing to be worried about, despite the fact that this is evidence that his body is not properly covered up.

Two days later... Having endured an hour-long grilling from Fuller about Booker’s disappearance, Tom exited his superior’s office feeling more than a little dispirited. Astute enough to know something had happened at the fraternity, Fuller had badgered him relentlessly about the hazing case, but Tom had remained stubbornly tight-lipped and had revealed only the bare facts, much to his captain’s indignation. But there was a reason behind Tom’s reticence. Without Booker by his side, he had come to acknowledge his rape as his own private hell and not something he could readily share with his friends.
John was an only person building an invisible barrier between him and his boy. He chose to be irresponsible and distant from his son, which engendered "their distance one from the other was greater than ever"(page 3). Secondly, he prioritized alcohol, which could strongly control his life and made him become irresponsible. For instance, "on the evening of the banquet, he was a little late getting home, having stopped in for a few drinks with a customer"(page 3). Another evidence is the detail when John poured a drink right after his wife asked him to go to the banquet.

Mr. Lumbergh’s assistant was told just to keep telling the employee that he was busy and would find time to talk to him eventually. That type of behavior is unacceptable.
