In the first few chapters, the writer welcomes you with his easy-going, friendly way of putting things. He invites you to listen to his life story without seeming forceful or self-important. The experiences he shares with us are simple, honest, and interesting because he is a likeable character from the get-go. The writer opens himself up in a way that is pleasant and appealing; he draws you in to his unwavering confidence by allowing you to sit down and have a cup of tea with him. The exchange feels easy and kind, and therefore, like a simple friend, you are attracted to come inside this strange new realm and hear a tale told from the other side of the world.
