The book is told in first person from Steve Thomas' point of view. This affects the tone is everything is portrayed and said he he wants it to be said. You pretty much only get one tone throughout the book. The plot is affected in which we are only told what he does as opposed to the other main character Susan Carol. We always know what he is doing or what he is going to do but not what Susan is going to do. I enjoy this instead of the female point of view because I can connect with him and I can't connect to her.
