The book is in first person, told through the point of view of Bill Romanowski. There isn't really a plot, so it doesn't contribute to that aspect. He goes back and tells of his experiences. It wouldn't be the same if it were told in a third person point of view, so it moves the story along. It makes it more interesting, making it fun to read, or at least as fun as a book can be, which isn't a whole lot. But nevertheless, this book is told in first person, is a decent book, and can contribute to the overall appeal to a reader.
