`Believability of the situation' is another main factor, which I find, contributes to the enjoyableness of a story. If the reader can believe that, the characters and the events these characters partake in may occur in real life, they may associate with the story more freely. The last characteristic, which helps me to enjoy a story, is the presence of rhetorical questions, which further help to involve the reader by promoting critical thinking, thus increasing the enjoyment experienced by the reader. The reader's ability to `see' the site, `smell' the smell, `taste' the taste is a crucial contributing aspect to the enjoyableness of a story. Baldwin, in "Sonny's Blues" puts a vivid image in the mind of the reader upon describing a scene on the street: "The woman... whose face was bright with joy...a cigarette between her heavy, chapped lips, her hair a cuckoo's nest, her face scarred and swollen...her black eyes glittering like coal."

Niedermeyer Pg. 4 In short, Reuben's style of writing, particularly his use of figures of speech, reveals quite a bit to the reader about his character and personality, as well as a deeper look into his thoughts at each turn of the story. Leif Enger makes very good use of these figures of speech to make Reuben a fully developed, believable, and likable character, one that many people would easily be able to relate to, no matter what their age, position in life, or the time period in which they read the book. Peace Like a River might have been written fairly recently, but its style and touching story, as well as the writing techniques used by the author and supposedly used by Reuben in recounting the story, give it the potential to be a classic, read for generations.
